IRON SUPPLEMENTARY FEED FOR PIGLETS

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.

Agro-FER™

The guaranteed solution. Allocated 5 times.
See instructions.

Triple-FER™

The simpler method. Allocated 3 times. Fast growing pigs may be supplemented with Combi-FER, if necessary.
See Instructions.

Fer1one™

The simple solution. One allocation may be enough. Fast growing pigs may be supplemented with Combi-FER, if necessary.

See Instructions.

Combi-FER™

When haemoglobin levels need to be boosted. Combi-FER can supplement any other primary iron supplements and sources.
See Instructions.

New! Power-FER™

When you need a higher level. Here we work with everything (raw materials, flavours, auxiliaries) that can boost iron absorption.
See Instructions.

Uni Pre-FER®

Intelligent iron and growth in the farrowing pen. The UniFeeder concept focuses on feeding newborns. The foundation for growth before weaning! See Instructions.
