It is well known that at high ambient temperature it is quite difficult to get enough energy in lactating sows. However, with an adapted feeding strategy, sufficient energy intake can be ensured even in summer.

The trial clearly shows that the addition of BEWI-FATRIX® SynerG+ was able to increase colostrum quality directly after farrowing. The product can positively influence the quality of sow’s colostrum in a natural way.
The foundation for business success is laid as early as the feeding of the young animals. Nobody knows the feed requirements of the animals as well as the farmer himself. That is why one aspect is particularly important to us in our daily work: practicability!
There is no substitute for the regular exchange with farm managers and this is an important corner stone block in product development at BEWITAL agri. On our partner farms, we can test the products under practical conditions for their benefits for the animal and farmer before launching them on the market. Only if the product also shows the desired effect in practical use over a longer period of time will it be offered to the market.
The antimicrobial activity of different fatty acids is well known in practice. Extensive improvement of gut health and reduced use of antibiotics can be reached with targeted combinations of fatty acids and other substances.
A targeted approach is important to decrease the impact of heat stress as much as possible. Modifying the feeding regime therefor plays an important role.
How to feed piglets healthy! To fight pathogens like streptococci or clostridia, pig farmers increasingly make use of feed additives containing medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA). The success is validated in their experiences in praxis.
Fatty acids support intestinal health! A healthy gut is important to have healthy piglet. Through matrix encapsulation, the active ingredients reach the intestine exactly where they are needed.
The challenge: Not only the weaning phase but also early rearing is important. At this time, the piglet’s digestive system is not fully developed. Often soybean meal is fed as only source of protein. But this often leads to digestive problems, especially in young piglets. This is due to anti-nutritional substances. The energy supply is […]

The challenge: Age-appropriated feeding regimes are very important aspects in piglet rearing. These should cover not only the animal’s energy but also nutrient requirements. This aspect is vital for meeting the demand for uniform, good growing as well as healthy animals. They can be reared without any problems. The digestive tract of young piglets is […]
The challenge: Age-appropriated feeding regimes, are very important aspects in piglet rearing. These should not only cover the animals’ energy but also the nutrient requirements. Feeding according to the animals´ needs therefore makes an important contribution to successful piglet rearing. What is missed at an early stage in life, cannot be compensated later on. After […]
The challenge: Breeding has significantly increased the growth- and performance potential. Not only of dairy cows and pigs but also of pigs. This goes hand in hand with a significantly higher energy requirement. For a successful economical animal farming, it is important to take care of a careful component selection. This is why highly digestible […]
The challenge: A disease of the respiratory tract causes significant economic losses. Stress situations are often a frequent cause of respiratory diseases and influenced by animated but also unanimated stressors. Unanimated stressors include e.g. transport, housing/ rehousing, changing feed and also weaning situation. Animate stressors are e.g. viruses or bacteria. In combination with respiratory diseases, […]
The challenge: Bacteria are the cause of many problems on pig farms. Infections with Streptococus suis (S. suis) but also Clostridium perfringens are considered to be a main reason for the high use of antibiotics in piglet production. The piglets are generally infected with S. suis already during or shortly after birth. The germs enter […]
The challenge: Illnesses of the respiratory tract cause considerable economic losses. Causes for this problem are often stress situations, animated but also inanimate. Inanimate stressors include e.g. transport, moving into/ changing stalls, changing feed and weaning. Animate stressors are e.g. viruses or bacteria. In connection with respiratory problems, the farm management but also an “eye […]
