The Value of Early Intake

After weaning, your pigs are fighting one of the biggest challenges of their lives. Pigs need early feed intake to power them through multiple sources of stress that hold them back such as:

  • Transitioning from milk to dry feed

  • Separation from the sow

  • New barn and social environment 

  • Changing immune system

  • Digestive stress


Until your newly weaned pigs start to eat, they are essentially starving. The longer non-eaters go without eating, the further behind they fall. 

Early intake helps reduce the number of non-eaters that are on the road to becoming culls or lights.
