Probiotics are important for swine production, as they help animals to achieve and maintain a stable and well-functioning digestive tract.

The profitability of sow units is highly dependent not only on reproductive performance of the sows but also the vitality of the piglets. Improving pre-weaning performance will also have a positive effect on the post weaning performance. BIOPLUS® brand products reduce pre-weaning mortality by an average of 3.2% points when applied to sow diets; which is equivalent to one more weaned piglet per sow per year.

The overall benefits of improved feed conversion ensure optimal body score at the end of lactation and more weaned piglets.
