DENMARK - The Complete PorcBoost™ probiotic programme supports all stages of swine production, says Chr. Hansen.

Customers are invited to join Chr. Hansen at EuroTier this November for the launch of PorcBoost – a new microbial feed-additive programme designed to support pork production from farrow to finish.

The new program combines Chr. Hansen’s industry-leading probiotics with useful tools and services that can be used during all stages of swine production.

Gorm Madsen, Director of Commercial Development, said: “Our complete probiotic range has proven performance benefits throughout the entire growth cycle. By combining these products with valuable tools and services, the PorcBoost programme aims to keep pigs fit and happy, while allowing our customers to maximize and measure their returns.”

Currently the PorcBoost program includes BioPlus®, Probios Guard® and Lactiferm®.

More brands will be added as the programme expands.

According to Technical Product Manager, Jens Joergensen, these probiotics are proven to meaningfully boost production performance in sows, piglets and grower-finishers.

He said: “Our dual-strain probiotics stabilise gut flora, while increasing digestive enzyme activity. Benefits for sows include better feed efficiency and higher reproductive rates, while grower-finishers benefit from improved weight gain, feed conversion and digestive function.”

The PorcBoost programme also features Chr. Hansen’s proprietary Reducing-Sugar Release (RSR) analysis, as well as a new European version of the company’s Caloric Efficiency Calculator (CEC).

Mr Joergensen added: “Our RSR analysis helps customers evaluate the efficacy of adding PorcBoost probiotics to their feed programmes before committing to using them. Customers can then use the CEC to predict returns based on different diet compositions, feed price levels and pig weight ranges.”

Chr. Hansen will be at EuroTier - Hall 16/J11.
