With Vida Fiber Muesli, ForFarmers presents the proven Vida Muesli in an optimized form. In addition, it meets all legal requirements of the Animal Welfare Initiative.
Due to the 20 percent crude fiber content, this piglet feed has an even stronger composition geared toward promoting gastrointestinal health, ForFarmers says. "The structure-rich organic employment material contained in the fiber muesli supports the animals' natural behavior. It arouses the piglets' curiosity and encourages them to eat more feed on the sow already in the pre-weaning phase. At the same time, the product helps piglets exercise their digestive tract. This benefits intestinal health and helps prevent diarrhea," reports Laura Klatte, pig product management at ForFarmers.
As early as the second week of life - and thus still on the sow - Vida Faser-Müsli should be given in addition to the usual prestarter and weaning feed, the company recommends. This is possible via a second bowl as well as "on top" with the prestarter, it says. "Current studies show that piglets spend around 2.5 times longer exploring the feed and eating it as a result of this more varied offer," Klatte explains. In the flat deck, the feed should therefore be offered ad libitum in addition to the piglet feed. This reduces weaning stress in the first weeks of life and increases feed intake.
