Suckling pigs and weaners

Immunological Gap Side 5A primary aspect of the production of suckling pigs and weaners is to ensure that the nutritional regimen is aimed at developing healthy intestinal function so the pigs achieve maximum production later on in life and maximum growth at the same time.

During the suckling phase, the initial challenge is to ensure that the piglet ingests a sufficient volume of colostrum and then to help the pig get through "the immunological gap”.


Finally, it is crucial for future pig productivity that the pig learns to ingest feed on its own.

The period just after weaning is particularly critical. Vitfoss is continuously working to develop concepts, which minimise the need for therapeutic treatment related to weaning. 

Vitfoss’ suckling and weaner products are specifically adapted to strengthen the immune response and gastrointestinal function.
