Trials conducted by Nottingham Trent University found that Orego-Stim top dressed to sow diets helped to support the 3 L’s approach for unit success; Lactation performance, Lifetime piglet performance and Less interventions.

The research found that piglets from sows whose diets were top dressed with Orego-Stim required 4.7 percent less treatment with medication than piglets from sows fed the basal diet. Additionally, pre-weaning mortality was reduced from 14.3 percent to 10.9 percent and the piglets displayed improved performance post-weaning, with an average finishing weight which was 3.4kg heavier than piglets from control sows.

“Top dressing is a very cost effective method of delivery as it allows farmers to target individuals or groups of sows,” explained Heidi Hall, Anpario’s Global Technical Service Manager and Swine expert. “It can also be particularly beneficial for gilts as they are still growing and therefore lactation intakes can struggle,” Heidi continued. “Orego-Stim TD supports sows pre and post-partum, stimulates lactation performance and helps optimise the lifetime performance of their progeny,” Heidi concluded.
