Weaning is a major event for pigs and has dramatic consequences. In modern production systems, it introduces behavioral stress through relocation and nutritional stress through a complete change in feed source and structure.
One of the main consequences is low feed-intake and a disturbance of the microbial balance in the gut, all leading to a depressed performance of piglets.
Our probiotics have been shown to support normal GI functions during weaning and under stressful conditions. The most robust indication is establishment of normal fecal consistency.
