The challenge: Piglets are born without their own immune system. Therefore, early colostrum intake is essential for the newborns. Due to the pig’s placental barrier, they are born without maternal antibodies. This means they do not have any protection against infections. For this reason, an immediate as well as adequate supply of colostrum is not […]

BEWI-MILK® Piglet Grow

BEWI-MILK® Piglet Grow is our high-quality milk replacer. BEWI-SAN® Piglet Grow can be used as a follow-up milk or liquid prestarter The challenge: Sufficient supply of high-quality feed to the piglets is a particular challenge due to the increasing litter size. The feeds used must meet the highest standards and always be adapted to the […]

The challenge: Fostering is necessary because of increasing litter size and the associated milk deficit. Also because some sows die after giving birth. In practice, technical solutions (fostering machines) are increasingly used for this purpose. The aim is to provide piglets with an adequate amount of milk and as a result giving them the best […]

The challenge Due to even larger litters, the sufficient supply of piglets is a particular challenge. Although the milk yield of the sows has been increased the milk yield of sows through breeding progress, this has not been to the same extent as the number of piglets born alive. Other disadvantages of increased sow fertility […]


The challenge: Advances in breeding led to an increase in litter size. An improvement in sow breeding performance and the number of piglets sold has a considerable impact on the profitability of piglet production. However, breeding success is associated with some drawbacks: 


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 […]

The challenge: The immune system of piglets is very slow to develop, which means that suckling piglets in the critical first four weeks of life are particularly vulnerable to diarrhoea conditions. Diarrhoea is an intestinal condition that manifests mainly as watery stools, dehydration but also weight loss. The growth depressions cannot be made up later. […]

The challenge: During rearing, the animals’ growth potential should be optimally utilised. Negative factors during this phase costs the animal energy and therefore usually also growth. Supporting the immune system is therefore of great importance. This can prevent growth depression and minimise financial losses. Negative factors can include transport, rehousing or feed changes. Appetite-stimulating substances […]
