Sow feed intake is important because sows are becoming more productive thanks to the continuous genetic improvement by pig breeding companies. This increase in litter size places a huge burden on the sow to feed her litter. For the sows, the objective is simple: supplying more milk – and for that purpose, they need to eat.
Listen to Professor Bruno Silva, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Institute of Agricultural Sciences ICA in Brazil addressing the feeding behaviour in sows. Trials on flavour presented in these videos are showing the performance of our Krave® AP solutions, dedicated to boost feed intake in lactating sows.
