There are countless problems associated with early piglet development, yet despite efforts to overcome these, producers leave growth potential, and ultimately money, on the table.
Reaching a beneficial intestinal microbiota early in life is desirable for piglets, as microbiota will impact their future health. The contribution of gastrointestinal tract microbiota to pig health and performance, including metabolism of nutrients, stimulation of immune response, and protection is becoming increasingly evident.
BRUSSELS (December 5th, 2018) – As a leader in swine nutrition, Novus International, Inc. has hosted a European Swine Nutrition Roundtable in Barcelona, November, 27-28, bringing together European pig industry’s leading experts to share knowledge and learn opportunities in swine production.
Brussels, Belgium (November 30th, 2018). Two seminars on the latest scientific research on MINTREX have been hosted by Novus at Eurotier. The aim was to reinforce the benefits of its exclusive bis-chelate molecule and to show the latest research of the “MINTREX Reduce and Replace” strategy. These seminars brought together experts from Europe to discuss the various challenges facing hyperprolific sows and high performing broiler breeders.
Feeding sows with MINTREX has a positive effect on the offspring through the modulation of the expression of genes, helping the piglet reach its weaning under better conditions
“Trace mineral maternal supplementation in the form of MINTREX offers the opportunity to improve the structural health and reproductive performance, the development of the piglet and productivity of the growing pig” Mercedes Vazquez-Anon, Senior Director of Animal Nutrition and Facilities at Novus International
