Pig Expertise

Since 1983, BIOMIN has built a team comprising swine experts with different disciplines, knowledge and practical experiences in pig nutrition. The purpose was to create, through original research and continuous innovation, a wide range of solutions to help farmers run successful piggeries.

Over the last decade, BIOMIN has expanded this team to include a number of vets and nutritionists with combined extensive experiences in pig production. Together, they bring a unique expertise in the ins-and-outs of everyday pig production.

BIOMIN swine experts work together to offer a complete knowledge suite of pig rearing practices, while providing up-to date information and support to customers.

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins target many organs and tissues in swine, with the main ones being the liver, gut, kidneys and immune competent tissue. The outcome is decreased performance and higher sensitivity to pathogens. Symptoms are often latent in the swine that now manifest as in weakened animals with lowered sensitivities to vaccines and antibiotics.

Feed & Water Hygiene

Hygiene is a concept that involves many parameters important to ensuring successful animal production. Feed and water are commonly contaminated with bacteria, including potential pathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella spp.

Feed Efficiency

Fluctuations in the grain and pork markets strongly influence the profitability of the piggery business. Feed efficiency is not only the key parameter of profitability, but also for the sustainability of grains and proteins use on this planet. Better feed efficiency means better nutrient digestibility, gut health and less manure produced.

Endotoxins

Of special interest to pig farmers is the involvement of endotoxins in, for example, the mastitis-metritis-agalactia complex in sows or the sudden death syndrome in piglets. These are just two examples of endotoxin-associated diseases which can cause financial losses and more work for farmers.

Gut Health & Management

Fulfilling the needs of pigs and protecting them from diseases through management and nutrition are key towards reaching the maximum genetic potential of pigs, decreasing costs. Good management and nutrition are also the prerequisites to farming success especially during tough times.
