SCHAUMALAC 50 PLASMA G - sow farm achieves better feed conversion in pig rearing


Reports from the world of practice confirm it: SCHAUMALAC 50 PLASMA G supplements the farm’s own cereals by 50% and improves piglet health and vitality, getting pig rearing off to a smooth start. SCHAUMALAC 50 PLASMA G mixes are now fed not only on specialised starter farms but also in conventional production units.

 

A practical comparison on a SCHAUMANN customer farm proves how successful it is. The results of a 450-sow herd using SCHAUMALAC 50 PLASMA G mixes in the initial phase of pig rearing were compared with results obtained through the use of a conventional starter mix according to the SCHAUMANN concept.

 

Trial period

 

During the three-week suckling period and the rearing period, the piglets received the farm’s own mixes with different proportions of SCHAUMALAC 50 PLASMA G and SCHAUMALAC PROTECT F 100 or SCHAUMALAC F 90 up to a liveweight of 30 kg (see illustration of feed mixes).

The test data used were simultaneous measurements on a control group given a conventional starter mix according to the SCHAUMANN Concept, but without blood plasma and fish meal. The piglets were weaned at an average liveweight of 6.3 kg.

 

Results

 

The trial group had daily weight gains that were 32 g higher on average. The rearing period was reduced by 4 days compared with the control group. The piglets receiving SCHAUMALAC 50 PLASMA G showed a feed conversion rate of 1:1.69 (control 1:1.79). In addition, improved piglet vitality was observed, especially in the initial rearing period (see results table).

 

Summary

 

The results confirm the effectiveness of Schaumalac 50 Plasma G. Higher daily weight gains, improved feed conversion and increased throughput guarantee the economic viability of pig rearing. It has never been so easy to meet the needs of rearing piglets in the weight range from 6.5 to 30 kg liveweight.

The Product

SCHAUMALAC 50 PLASMA G is a piglet feed supplement that contains gelatinised cereals, vegetable and animal protein, top quality dairy and fat components and a full supply of minerals and active ingredients. The active proportions of fish meal and blood plasma ensure high protein quality and guarantee an optimum supply of protein. Multiple trials confirm that the use of blood plasma increases piglets’ feed intake in the first few weeks after weaning. The immune system and the development of the digestive tract are also improved.
