SENS Nutrition supplies innovative products to support the health of the pig, improve performance and to help reduce the use of antibiotics.
The benefits of zinc and copper in maintaining a healthy gut flora are well known but recent legislation will limit their use.
Between now and August 2019 the amount of copper in piglet and weaner feeds (which positively influences the gut microflora) is being reduced. This will affect performance and potentially impact gut health. CoRouge is a novel form of copper which is more effective at modulating the gut microflora leading to better pig health and performance.
To reduce the use of zinc oxide in piglet feeds is a challenge for producers, nutritionists and veterinarians alike. HiZox is a unique form of non-prescription ZnO that is effective at a low inclusion and should be used as part of your strategy to reduce or remove the inclusion of prescription zinc.
