Provimi offers piglet milk replacer for reduced mortality rates
Provimi's piglet milk replacer, RescueMilk, can reduce piglet mortality by 5% and increase weaning weight by up to 0.5 kg, according to the company.
RescueMilk is fed using an automated system and fed through RescueCups which are installed in the farrowing pen or in a RescueDeck. “It ensures that all piglets born have access to adequate amounts of milk and it gives the weaker piglets chance to catch up, making the litter more uniform in size," said Stephen Cassidy, Provimi pig product manager for the UK and Ireland. "The system also encourages the intake of dry feed so that post weaning dips are minimized.”
