01.09.2020 – Sow husbandry has developed steadily in recent years. The performance level in piglet production has risen steadily in parallel with the milk quantity and quality of the sows. In order to tap the full potential of the high-performance animals, it is necessary to feed them according to their performance and needs. Classical feeding concepts reach their limits here. With the deuka brand digest concept, Deutsche Tiernahrung Cremer presents an advanced feeding concept for high-performance sows in pregnancy and lactation.

Due to the increasingly fertile genetics and the associated higher performance of the animals, the demands on sow feed have risen steadily," says Christina Jesse, head of the pig division at Deutsche Tiernahrung Cremer. "The new digest concept covers all the requirements of high-performance sows and is thus our innovative feeding answer for modern farms." As a comprehensive concept, digest is available as a gestation and lactation feed. The carefully coordinated component framework counteracts stress and digestive problems when changing feed and thus ensures problem-free transfer to the farrowing house.

lactosan digest: Lactation feed for a higher sales weight and more milk

The lactation feed lactosan digest improves the milk yield of lactating sows and maximises the weaning weight of piglets. By taking into account the praecaecal-digestible amino acids, the crude protein content could be adapted exactly to the sows' needs. A lowering of the crude protein causes a faster acidification of the feed in the stomach and thus a faster emptying into the intestine. This increases the sows' feed intake capacity. The product achieves an improvement in milk yield through the addition of valine, among other things. The good utilisability of the free amino acid maximises the nutrient efficiency and protein digestibility of the modern premium feed.

gravisan digest: gestation feed for optimising condition and for vital piglets

gravisan digest is a highly vitamin-enriched gestation feed. In addition to providing full nutrition for pregnant sows, it aims to maintain the animals' optimal condition and supports the birth of vital piglets. The fibre mix in gravisan digest contains an optimal combination of soluble and insoluble fibres. The high water-binding capacity of the insoluble fibres stimulates intestinal peristalsis and improves defecation. This prevents the spread of pathogenic germs in the intestine. Soluble fibres provide an optimal nutritional basis for the flora of the large intestine, which increases resistance to external influences. The addition of medium-chain fatty acids helps prevent the spread of streptococci and clostridia. Added endotoxin binders have positive effects on preventing inflammation in the uterus and udder.

Premium feed available in Northern and Western Germany

The production and delivery of digest feeds will start in August 2020 and the products will initially be available from selected factories. Farmers can obtain the modern premium feeds for high-performance sows in Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia as well as in parts of Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse.
