Post-colostrum milk for larger litters
and in case of insufficient colostrum intake

BEWI-SAN Piglet Start

The challenge:

Piglets are born without their own immune system. Early colostrum intake is therefore essential for the newborns because, due to the pig’s placental barrier, they are born without maternal antibodies and thus without protection against infections. An immediate and adequate supply of colostrum is therefore essential and plays a decisive role in farrowing management.

However, due to increasing litter sizes, the amount of colostrum per piglet may be insufficient. Especially the piglets that are lighter and less vital at birth receive less colostrum and thus have poorer starting conditions.In very large litters or those with below-average milk yields of the sows, this can quickly lead to gaps in supply for the suckling piglets.

In these situations, it is recommended to offer the piglets a post-colostrum milk.

Your benefits:

  • High-quality supply for large litters
