Colostrum and sow milk will provide piglets with the majority of the nutrients they need. However, a high-quality additional transition milk is needed to prepare them for smooth weaning. After weaning, the supply of nutrients changes radically. Carbohydrates replace fat as the main energy source, and there is a shift from animal to vegetable protein.
Piglait’s Robust Litter line includes specific milks that are specially designed to ‘train’ the gut of young piglets. The digestive system must reach a certain level of development for the piglet to be able to digest carbohydrates. Normally, this level is only reached after weaning, but it can be attained before weaning with Piglait.
‘The Robust Litter line is also ideal for large litters farms, with early weaning systems, farms situated in warmer climates or big integrator units.
