MiZi - the new companion for all piglets

Logo MiZi - micronized zinc oxide

Diarrhoea is one of the most common diseases in flatdeck piglets. But the new SCHAUMANN active ingredient MiZi from micro-ionised zinc oxide is showing promising results in practical trials. With 40 %, gastrointestinal diseases are among the most common reasons for using antibiotics in pig farming. Alternatively, pharmacological doses of 2,500- 3,000 ppm zinc oxide (ZnO) are also employed with great success. However, with a view on resistance formation and environmental loads, alternative approaches are desirable.

This is where MiZi, the SCHAUMANN innovation comes into play: The special, purely mechanical treatment of ZnO increases the surface and also activates the molecular structure.Therefore, MiZi already demonstrates further functional properties when added in doses permitted within the feed regulations. The result is comparable with the effects of pharmacological doses of ZnO.

Due to the effective E. coli inhibition and the associated clear reduction in diarrhoea in weaners, the application of MiZi makes an important contribution to animal welfare. At the same, the environmental protection aspect is taken into account through the considerably reduced Zn content in single feeds, and the subsequently reduced excretion, when compared with pharmacological doses.
