Replacing belief with scientific knowledge to solve PIG challenges

Post weaning diarrhea – these three words are shiver down the spine of every farmer – no wonder: In the EU, nearly every 4th piglet is affected by PWD. Antibiotic medication is necessary and loss of profit is the consequence. Therefore, the goal of our particular development was all about protection for the young, weaning piglet. With Fresta®Protect  we created a simple solution out of complex phytogenic blends to prevent PWD and contribute to a sustainable, profitable pig production with the minimized use of antibiotics. Sounds phytogenius – doesn’t it?

Phytogenics reduce post weaning diarrhea in piglets

“Phytogenics are effective in reducing the impact of post-weaning diarrhea in piglets via stimulation of feed intake, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and via quorum sensing inhibition”.

Gut integrity and performance, the key message from phytogenics use

“The role of phytogenics is also an important option for improving gut health in modern poultry production nowadays” How? “By better control of inflammations, reduced pathogenicity of clostridium perfingens and alleviating severity of coccidiosis infections”.
