PrimeFeed for Prime Piglets
Providing piglets with the best conditions in terms of growth and feed utilization doesn’t come easy. The ambitious farmer already starts feeding in the farrowing unit and provides suitable feed changes and various piglet mixtures during the pig’s first few weeks after birth.
A sustainable feed strategy starts with the smallest pigs
PrimeFeed is Vilofoss’ prestarter feed, suitable for piglets being a few days old and until they weigh around 15 kg. With the PrimeFeed range, focus is on getting the pigs off to a good start. The feed mixtures are produced using highly digestible raw materials, and with flavour and scent encouraging the pigs to eat.
An early feed intake strengthens health, growth and, not least, improves the economy. In fact, 100 g additional feed during the first week after weaning results in the piglets weighing 1 kg extra at the age of 42 days. Therefore, the weaning blends are based on the same ingredients as the farrowing feed. This provides recognition and ensures continued feed intake during the stressful period after weaning.
With the series Mini, Mini Plasma, Midi, Maxi and Midi Safe, you can find a piglet mix suitable for pigs of all ages. With the Safe Soft line, we offer a piglet mix for gentle weaning, which also increases the success rate of weaning without zinc.
