Agromega has been developed to supply supplemental essential fatty acids to pig feeds to redress the imbalance between omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids and to give a supplemental source for the long chain fatty acids DHA and EPA that are not present in any vegetable oil used in animal feed.
Benefits of Agromega:
- For sows, a higher rate of foetal survival during pregnancy resulting in larger litter size.
- For boars, a greater amount ejaculate, higher concentration and higher doses of semen.
- For piglets, a greater brain development leading to less crushing. In addition, the immune system of the piglet is enhanced leading to less growth suppression during a disease challenge.
The combined effect on boars, sows and piglets can give an averaged increase of 0.5 extra piglet weaned per sow/litter which has a huge impact on the profitability of a pig breeding operation.
