Results with pigs

A few years ago, MS Schippers unveiled the HyCare method for cured pork. For 3 years, experts from De Heus (an international animal feed production and marketing company) tested this method in collaboration with a HyCare specialist. The results went far beyond expectations.

impressive results

The researchers studied 10 piglet farms where the HyCare method is applied. These are post-weaning piglets (from 7 to 25.5 kg) of different origins and genetics. Compared to the national average (of the Netherlands), it is clear that the zootechnical results of these piglets are much better.

Indeed, MS Schippers’ HyCare method generates impressive results: reduced use of antibiotics, increased growth, improved animal welfare, and higher yields.

Hygiene management that pays

MS Schippers demonstrates with this study that hygiene management has a major impact on health, and therefore on animal performance. The costs associated with the method are largely offset by additional income per animal and lower feed costs.

HyCare continues its development

The good results obtained with HyCare led De Heus to decide to deploy the method on more farms. In recent months, a breeding site of 5,200 piglets has been converted to a HyCare site. Because concrete is less used in piglet farming, the coating costs are relatively lower than those of pork pigs. Large-scale data will soon be available.
