Natural milk replacement for nutrition of pigs Ekolak P
Feeding pigs in the first 3-4 weeks represents the most complex and the hardest phase of growth. Their digestive tract and enzyme systems are under-developed, and adjusted for the milk of the mother. Because of this, the biggest problem in that period is provision of appropriate sources of nutrients. Lacking mother’s milk (poor lactation, large number of pigs, death of the mother) replacers can be used to replace mother’s milk. Replacers have to be made of the top quality sources of nutrients of animal or vegetable origin, having perfectly proper hygiene and thus contribute to the preservation of the number of piglets litter, reducing mortality and achieving desired growth rate.
The most common nutrients that are used in the production of milk replacers for pigs are milk powder, sweet whey powder, partially fat-reduced powder from peeled and thermally processed soya beans, vegetable protein isolate, dextrose, fat and oil, with addition of emulifiers, calcium and phosphorus sources, and other macro and microelements, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, organic acids, flavor and other additives.
In the world there are few manufacturers of milk replacers for piglets because their production requires highly sophisticated equipment, application of modern nutritional recommendations based on knowledge of the physiology of digestion and feed utilization. One such factory is "Bioprotein" (within the business system of the Bankom Ltd. in Belgrade).
