Fattening mineral feed - NatuPig in fattening pigs

By utilising the NatuPig product line a low-protein and low-phosphorus feeding concept can be achieved. The new possibilities (see figures 1 and 2) are confirmed by practical experience.

Preservation of resources and optimized feed costs

The reduction of 2 % extruded soybean meal in the feed mixture, without the additional use of synthetic amino acids, can result in high potential saving for every farm. For example, with 1.000 fatteners, feeding NatuPig can save up to 24 t / year extruded soybean meal (see figure 3).

NatuPig – example from practical experience 

Farm Rottler from Bergen (250 sows, PIC genetics, 1.200 fatteners with liquid feeding system) has been using the NatuPig active substance Ceravital XP in fattening since spring 2019 (see figure 4). Compared to the previous diets, 2% less high-protein extruded soybean meal was used in all fattening phases, while the level of added synthetic amino acids (lysine, methionine and threonine) remained unchanged. 

An average of 871 g daily gain and 1: 2.72 feed conversion was achieved, which is an example of the high-performance level on the farm.  Since the diet change did not affect the level of synthetic amino acids, the lean meat content remained at a high level of over 60% (see figure 5), while reducing the extruded soybean meal levels. 

Changing the diet by adding NatuPig in the feed reduces extruded soybean meal and saves feed costs and nutrient excretions – without affecting sales revenues.
