Products and Formulation Optimise Pig Health & Nutrition
Piglets are vital to the pork industry, but they are often born weak and with insufficient milk, resulting in high mortality rates and the need for antibiotics. To address this issue, a technology provider has developed a formulation containing medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which can help piglets recover quickly, disinfect bacteria, inhibit viruses, balance gut microorganisms, and improve immunity levels.
The formulation contains a high concentration of lauric acid and monolaurin, which account for more than 40% of the total fatty acid content. It also contains natural extracts and curcuminoids from palm kernel oil with techniques decarboxylated that help reduce oxidative stress, stimulate the immune system, and reduce inflammation in the digestive tract of piglets.
The technology provider is seeking collaboration partners to reduce antibiotic use in the pig industry, which will result in fewer chemical residues in meat and lower production costs.
