Breeding performance in swine
The average breeding sow achieves only 2.5 litters in her lifetime. Around 30% of replacement gilts fail to produce a single litter. Our range of products can help unlock the potential in breeding females, combating this significant drain on resources.
Strength to succeed
Frame and leg problems are a major cause of premature culling, and a significant expense. Gilts and sows with strong skeletons and good skeletal conformation are able to reproduce to their potential.
Supplementing sow and gilt diets with Hy-D® – the rapidly available and safe metabolite of vitamin D3 – has been shown to:
- Increase the proportion of gilts selected as replacements
- Reduce sow culling rates
- Increase piglets produced per sow
The end result is better lifetime performance for sows, meaning higher profitability.
