High Herd Health Study

High Herd Health Study

FURST PROTECT™ is a nutritional supplement, providing essential fatty acids that play a critical role in supporting development of the gut, immune system and other physiological needs.

A seven week research trial was conducted with high health pigs (<1% Nursery Mortality) with 12 replicate pens per treatment, and DNA 600 sired piglets weaning approximately 13 pounds. This trial demonstrated that correct support of the gut may support life-time feed efficiency, and overall health.

Improved Feed Efficiency
