Iron supply is the new “black”.
Rising sizes of pig litters means lower iron levels at birth. The rapid growth in the first weeks of the pig’s life increases the need for iron and can deplete iron levels before weaning. Did you know that there is a direct correlation between haemoglobin level and growth after weaning. Iron supplement feed is a must for RWA (Raised Without Antibiotics) production and is perfect for feed training, as it promotes rooting behaviour.
Check your pigs’ haemoglobin levels and watch out for “The Iron Gap” – see the graph below.
