Feeding Sows More Efficiently
Refining amino acid requirements throughout gestation can help save costs, as they are often overfed nutrients at the start of gestation and underfed at the end. A singe phase feeding program does this, so a phase feeding program with two diets that is parity-segregated should be implemented. Slightly less feed is used in this program and the sows are fed according to the nutrients they need. This leads to better condition at farrowing, prolonged productive life and better rebreeding success.
