New product helps pigs reach market weight

Animal health and nutrition company Alltech has launched a new product to promote a healthy gut and microflora in pigs.

Viligen focuses on enhancing gut form and function while optimizing the immune system to maintain health status. For producers with weaned pigs, Viligen promotes gut health by directly targeting the gut mucosa.

When the technology is added to the diet of piglets, it prepares the immature gut for efficient nutrient absorption and rapid growth, and it encourages feed intake by providing fatty acids, prebiotic components and readily available mineral forms.

“Viligen is the first product of its kind and will be available in all Alltech markets,” said Jules Taylor-Pickard, global species director at Alltech. “Pig producers will notice better intestinal health in their piglets, which will lead to better animal performance.”

Viligen will also drive feed intake and support health and survivability, said Dr Taylor-Pickard. Increasing feed intake in the piglets optimizes performance and provides a sturdy platform for optimal health, specifically gut health.

By promoting gut health, Viligen is designed to help more pigs reach market weight. As demonstrated in commercial research, piglets consuming Viligen have improved average daily gain and average daily feed intake.

Alltech says the technology addresses all profit and production aspects of nursery pig nutrition, including feed intake, body weight gain, piglet health, survivability and improved numbers of all-value pigs.
