Prevent heat stress with feeding

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 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 background: Due to their fast and effective energy-providing properties, medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) are particularly important in animal nutrition. The various MCFAs serve, among other things, as an energy supplier for intestinal cells, for growth performance and for optimising the rearing of piglets. Among the various MCFAs, lauric acid in particular has established itself […]
