For modern pig producer, maintaining the good gut health of pigs needs to be an imperative because it has a significant impact on pig health and performance. Simply, the gut is the largest organ that supports immune system and as a first line of defence.
Good gut health and integrity means that gut microbiome is balanced in favour to probiotic instead of pathogen microflora and nutrient absorption is increased. Consequently, mortality rate of pigs is low, feed intake and average daily gain is improved and pigs’ production is more cost-effective. In addition, better gut health reduce cost of veterinarians, medicines and labour time in managing animals with low performance and bad health.
‘’Your decision to maintain good gut health of pigs means that you decided to have higher returns in pig production’’
