The piglets must get used to solid food.
Their thermoregulatory system is not very efficient.
The piglets do not secrete the enzymes necessary for digestion.
The base mix of this phase contains the same aromas as the embryonic phase, which means that it improves palatability and increases feed intake.
The synergic combination of prebiotics, probiotics and exogenous enzymes contribute to proper adaptation to solid food and its maximum utilisation.
Immature digestive system and continued risk of diarrhoea.
Growth dispersion and a need for different handling practices
In this phase Produmix aims to maximise growth at the lowest possible cost, decreasing the percentage of small piglets in each batch, and providing a high level of intestinal safety which enables a reduction in the use of antibiotics.
