There is a great potential for improving piglet survival, leading to even more weaned piglets per litter. The key elements that enable sows to wean many piglets are healthy sows and piglets, the right nutrition and the right mangement throughout the lactation period.
Feed composition and feed strategy in the gestation period are crucial factors to achieving a high performing lactating sow with a satisfying longevity. DanBred sows have proven performance results, and this article discusses how to make sure you are getting the most out of her genetic potential.
The correct feeding strategy for the lacating sow is frequently discussed, and the aim of this article is to describe the latest research results and how they should be used to support nursing capacity, average daily litter gain and subsequent reproduction to release the extraordinary genetic potential of the DanBred sow.
The successful rearing of many high-quality DanBred piglets is centred around the attentive management of the sows as well as the piglets. When working with new-born piglets, it is important to look at all factors that influence and determine their subsequent performance, as this can directly influence the success of the overall pig production.
DanBred breeding sows deliver extraordinary reproductive results, therefore an attentive focus on feeding and body condition during lactation will lead to consistent reproductive performance and high lifetime productivity. Supporting sows with regular use of potassium diformate in the lactation diets has shown to improve the overall condition of sows as well as support immediate piglet … Continued
Swine fertility has a significant effect on farm profitability and the number of pigs produced per sow per year is a key factor when defining production costs per pig. Modern pig genetics such as DanBred come with an extraordinary genetic potential for reproductive performance. Focused attention on feeding and especially quality of raw materials will … Continued
Are you aware how gilts and sows to reach their optimal KPI’s in production? Focusing on optimising the diets for gilts will help to set a prime starting point for significant lifetime productivity?
Did you know that regardless of your genetic choice, following a Danish feeding strategy can increase both the litter size and the number of born alive piglets significantly without additional feed costs?
Learn how feeding the DanBred gilt is the key to releasing potential for longevity and prolificacy.
Maximizing litter size in first parity is of outmost interest to optimize herd productivity. DanBred shows you how to set a prime starting point on the road to release the genetic capability.
DanBred pigs have a natural potential for a high lean meat percentage in the finisher production. Here is how you exploit the potential.
Ensuring a continuous energy supply to the sows during the days prior to farrowing, will increasing piglet viability markedly. Find out why.
