Elanco wishes to advise on appropriate strategies to overcome post-weaning diarrhoea (PWD), by offering free diagnostics ahead of the removal of zinc oxide. Coliprotec™ immunises young pigs, from as early as 18 days of age, against enterotoxigenic F4 and F18 Escherichia coli, the main cause of PWD. Elanco is also supporting producers in overcoming escalating feed prices. Hemicell™ XT is an energy sparing enzyme for inclusion in feed rations to improve Intestinal Integrity, growth and production efficiency. Hemicell XT acts to prevent the feed-induced immune response (FIIR) to ß-mannans which are anti-nutritive fibres commonly found in swine feeds. Learn more at MyElanco.co.uk.
