Sow farmers depend on high feed intake in the farrowing house and a flying start for weaned piglets. Feed intake is often insufficient, which results in a difficult period for piglets.This causes issues in the piglet barn. Prevent problems such as post-weaning diarrhoea and other unpleasant consequences of insufficient feed intake before and after weaning. Nijsen’s approach to piglets with Forti Go enables you to put a stop to these problems.
We believe the following factors are important
to achieve the desired results:
- Good feed intake in the farrowing house. Our guideline is to provide 400 to
500 grams of feed per piglet in the farrowing period. Achieving this quantity
gives a higher chance of good intestinal health, which makes for healthy
piglets that can consume feed properly.
- Good feed intake after weaning. Our guideline is that a weanling pig should
eat at least 75 grams of feed on the first day after weaning. An average of
300 grams per day is then recommended for a total intake of 2.1 kg of weaning
feed in the first week after weaning. These quantities guarantee a good start
for a piglet in the most critical period of its life.
A strategy is chosen based on the farmer’s needs that suits the farmer and their wishes. This is worked out using a feeding schedule with the relevant manual that accompanies the strategy.
- Very good feed intake
- Very tasty and easily digestible
- High gut health
- Lower feed costs per piglet
- More even litter size/composition
- Certainty: monitoring growth data
