A large- scale feeding trial of VITAPOL feed supplements was carried out by MÍG -SERVISZ-AGROAGRICULTURAL COMPANY Suhoj Jelanyec f., Novoodesky District, Nikolaevskaya County.
The feeding test was conducted on three sets of piglets. The groups were kept in separate farrowing buildings on the pig farm. In the air-conditioned buildings, 10-12 piglets (litters) were placed in each of the 14 farrowing pens. Groups were weaned at 7-day time intervals (according to the general rotation of the pig farm).
Start-date of the experiment: July 25, 2016.
Groups 1 and 3 comprised the control group, and the piglets received LBN pre-starter pig feed. Group 2, the observed group received VITAPOL Suspension together with the pre-starter feed at a dose of 100 g/litter/day until weaning, between days 5-28 of life. After weaning, from day 28 to day 77, piglets received VITAPOL Pulvis mixed into the pig feed at a 1% concentration.
40% F1 (NF x L);
60% F2 (P х F1).
Conclusions from the results of the feeding test:
In this case, VITAPOL suspension and VITAPOL pulvis resulted in higher feed intake, which ultimately led to greater weight gain.
The weight gain of the experimental group increased in the pig post-rearing phase.
The available data show that both VITAPOL pulvis and suspension, when used as a feed supplement for piglets, positively affected by weight gain in the rearing and post-rearing phases compared to the control group. The feed intake of the experimental group also improved.
