Nursery

Nursery

Weaned pigs have many different and specific requirements for nutrients both for growth, gut development and immunity, and this early development influences performance later in its production cycle. Optimum gut development supports wean-to-harvest performance (e.g. Pluske et al. 2005).

FURST PROTECT™ integrates specific fatty acid nutrition for the gut, and includes the monoglyceride form of butyric acid, which supports gut development and growth, and has also been shown to support tight junctions in the small intestine that can be beneficial to reduce ‘leaky gut syndrome’ during heat stress (Bedford and Gong, 2018).

FURST PROTECT™ is the next generation of nutritional supplementation for nursery pigs.
