New product: DaaCare Piglet

The number of piglets born per sow have increased considerably in recent years. Still, it is essential that all newborn piglets start ingesting colostrum as early as possible. Piglets are born with very limited fat reserves and no antibodies. Colostrum contains the antibodies they need for protection against the pathogens in their environment. Moreover, colostrum contains the nutrients that are necessary for maintaining body temperature, keeping the animal active and promoting growth. An adequate source of good quality colostrum is therefore vital.

The best care for newborn piglets

It is often difficult to distribute colostrum evenly throughout a litter. A sow, for example, may not have enough teats, especially considering increased litter sizes. That means the less vital piglets sometimes have difficulty getting sufficient colostrum. The number of less vital piglets may increase, leading to greater variation in vitality within a litter. DaaCare®Piglet helps boost piglet vitality, particularly for those at the lower end of the vitality spectrum.
