Uterus-protection: the beginning of life is important
At the start of life every single gram of bodyweight counts:
110 g higher start weight...
...means in this farm a 620g higher weaning weight
And there is even more!
A higher birth-weight means:
- Lower body temperature loss in neonates
- Higher colostrum-intake and better health and immunity/resistance to infections
- Improved development of piglets in weaning and growing phase
- More pleasure from working with the pigs and less stress for human handlers
