Optimal care for pigs
Optimal care for pigs is required to support them in performing optimally. To achieve this, they need constant support. For pigs, this primarily means supporting their intestinal health. To improve this, a balanced mix of organic acids is added to their clean drinking water.
Adding these organic acids kills harmful bacteria and stimulates beneficial bacteria. This helps to create a healthy intestinal flora and healthy intestines, which improves the digestion of nutrients.
Administering acids and nutrients
Administering acids and specific nutrients to animals can be done in different ways, for instance by adding them to their feed. However, this way of administering acids has proven to be inefficient. As unhealthy pigs eat less, their intake of active components is also lower. In addition, the water intake of pigs is approximately double their feed intake.
Consequently, administering acids through the drinking water is the most effective way, as pig farmers can act quickly with drinking water and dosing these products is both flexible and convenient. This supports the animals when they need it the most. In addition to supporting the intestinal flora, these acids also have the benefit of adding taste to the water, which improves the taste sensation and with it, water intake.
Optimal care in relation to the other HyCare pillars
Optimal care is important to achieve the HyCare objectives for pigs. While this care contributes, it does not suffice as a stand-alone measure to keep pigs healthy and reduce the use of antibiotics. Hygiene levels must be increased as well, which means: a germ-free living environment in the areas where pigs need it the most. Together with apest-free stable pest-free stable, healthy drinking water and pore-free surfaces, these results can be achieved.
