Phoenix Natural Sow Base 100
A base mix combined with grain and soybean meal for developing gilts, sows and boars. Base mix includes Cinergy, which has antibacterial properties. Pathogenic bacterial growth may be reduced in the sow, and thus her piglets become exposed to fewer pathogens excreted in her feces.
Studies have shown that feeding essential oils to lactating sows can increase litter growth rate resulting in heavier pigs at weaning.
Field trials in commercial farms have suggested reduced sow mortality and improved reproductive performance of sows fed essential oils during the pre-farrowing and lactation periods. Thus, the application of essential oil-based products in the pre-farrowing and lactation periods has been demonstrated to improve both sow and litter performance.
