Due to breeding progress and improved keeping and feeding management the milk yield per performance period has been increased considerably in recent decades. However, falling milk prices, rising feed costs and more stringent environmental protection are ongoing challenges.
Young animals like piglets need special care in feeding. At weaning stage, piglets need to cope with the change from suckling milk to eating solid feeds while their digestive system is not fully developed. This is also the reason why piglets are very sensitive with anti-nutritional factors (ANFs) in feed ingredients. Thus, piglets easily get stressed, reduce feed intake, decrease growth performance and have diarrhea. Providing high digestible and high quality feed becomes a "must" to support piglets overcome this tough time.
