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 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.
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 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: Greater weight differences within a litter Weaker piglets are unable to compete with […]
The background: Due to their antibacterial and energy-providing properties, medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) are particularly important in animal nutrition. The broad spectrum of effects of MCFA has been proven to help strengthen the animals’ immune system. Lauric acid has proven to be a particularly active antibacterial agent. However, synergistic effects can only be achieved through […]
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 […]
