Piglet feed programme: AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG expands its range
Piglet prodution requires a great deal of knowledge, finger-tip precision and an optimal feed from the very first day. In particular, the very high number of piglets in modern sow genetics demands extraordinary requirements. In order to be able to overcome these challenges, AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG is expanding its portfolio for efficient piglet feeding from the day they are born.

"With the Neopigg RescueCare-System we are now offering an all-in concept for additional feeding during the suckling period," explains Alexandra Grimm, product manager at AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG. "With this system, the survival rate of piglets increased, the formation of nursing sows is reduced and weaning weights can be significantly increased."
The use of these products allows maximum feed intake during the suckling period from birth to weaning. As a result of the high intake of milk and prestarter, an enzyme training and the development of a good-performing digestion system are guaranteed. Correspondingly, higher daily intakes can be achieved after weaning and health issues can be avoided. The additional milk supply offers a good opportunity for large litters to be supported and weight loss by sows, which can lead to a lower number of piglets, can be limited.
AGRAVIS also offers patented technology for optimal use of the products: The Neopigg RescueCups allow Ferkelmilch Neopigg RescueMilk 2.0 and the liquid prestarter Neopigg Smooth 2.0 to used used when required 24 hours a day in the best hygienic and fresh quality.
The RescueCups are installed in every farrowing pen and automate the manual feeding. The piglets can help themselves and receive freshly prepared feed when required. Feed losses are kept to a minimum. The cups contribute to achieving the maximum success with the minimum amount of work.
Neopigg RescueCare and HeavyPig products can be purchasef from the agricultural centres of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG or the Raiffeisen agricultural cooperative societies. AGRAVIS ensures the installation and maintenance of the RescueCare systems with certified technician partners.
