The sow and gilt feeding program outlines nutrient specifications for gestation and lactation diets. The most recent scientific and technical information available in the development of these nutrient specifications are used.
Sows are the economic engine of swine production and define the prolificacy and maximum productivity of the entire system. While they are a small portion of the whole herd they consume approximately 20% of the feed farrow to finish.
For our specialized sires we provide a summary of nutrient recommendations. These are based primarily on internal research and have been validated in commercial environments around the world. The NRC (2012) serves as the basis for the information presented.
