ACTIVATE® DA nutritional feed acid is a proprietary organic acid blend for gut health and pig performance. Studies show that pigs fed ACTIVATE® DA had improved feed conversion rates compared to pigs fed Control diets. This improvement leads to lower overall production cost and higher profitability for the producer.

Across lifecycle stages, pigs are susceptible to disease and other off-feed events. ACTIVATE® DA works in the feed to reduce risk of viruses like porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRS) and Senecavirus A1. ACTIVATE® DA also works in the pig to help counter off-feed events that can lead to decreased feed efficiency and increased risk of diarrhea and mortality2.
