PIGLETS

The 70 most delicate and crucial days in the lives of pigs require a nutrition plan that prepares them to develop all their growth potential as healthily as possible.

At Produmix, we design feeding programmes to ensure that piglets reach their health and growth potential and achieve the best results during the fattening phase.

To find out more about each programme, click on the links below and a dropdown menu will open with the information.

PHASE 0 / SOWS

CRITICAL POINT

The stage in which the muscular system that will mark their growth potential is formed.

It is important that colostrum is taken, as it is the main source of energy and immunity for piglets.

PRODUMIX ACTION

During gestation, the addition of the right mineral and vitamin level nourishes the placenta and ensures better growth of the embryo's vital organs, such as the liver and the lung, as well as improved development of the muscular system.

In lactation, the combination of phytonutrients stimulates the production of antibodies that will subsequently be transferred to the colostrum, leading to better development of the immune system.

"Aroma breeding" enables us to achieve the "imprinting" effect, thereby avoiding post-weaning stress. The piglet consumes it from the foetal phase through the placenta and amniotic fluid, and it will be present in the feed of subsequent phases.

PHASE 1 / SUPER PRE-STARTER

CRITICAL POINT

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.

PRODUMIX ACTION

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.

PHASE 2 / PRE-STARTER

CRITICAL POINT

Digestive and immune system with limited enzymatic capacity.

Atrophy of intestinal villi and risk of diarrhoea.

PRODUMIX ACTION

In this phase, the Produmix base mix contains enzymes, probiotics and prebiotics (which improve feed digestibility and the utilisation of phytate phosphorus), and gut flora stabilisers (which create an intestinal biological barrier, preventing the development of pathogenic flora).

The improved utilisation of raw materials, together with the improved state of health, leads to better growth (GMD) and a lower conversion rate (CR).

PHASE 3 / STARTER

CRITICAL POINT

Immature digestive system and continued risk of diarrhoea.

Growth dispersion and a need for different handling practices

PRODUMIX ACTION

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.
