OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE IRON
STATUS AND PERFORMANCE OF PIGLETS

Piglets raised within modern systems are increasingly susceptible to anaemia, with hyperprolific sows placing greater stress on newly weaned piglets and the shift towards vegetable proteins in feed resulting in poor bioavailability of dietary iron.

Even with the commonly-used iron injection, data has shown that modern pigs from high milk production sows may still become borderline anaemic by weaning. Therefore new post-weaning feed applications that can mitigate the effects of iron deficiency are being explored.

One such solution is the use of higher doses of Quantum Blue to unlock the dietary iron potential bound by phytate.

The use of high doses of phytase in piglet starter feeds to target >80% phytate destruction has resulting in improved post-weaning performance

"Even with current practices, anaemia in pigs at and post-weaning is widespread and can have a negative effect on post-weaning growth. Hence, any new post-weaning feed applications that can mitigate the effects of iron deficiency should be explored"
