Young Animal Nutrition
We help you deliver the early nutrition your animals need for higher performance their entire lives.
Nothing so dramatically impacts the livability, health and growth of production animals – and your operation’s success – as early life nutrition. What you feed your animals before they are born and during the first stage of their lives is the single biggest variable in giving them a head start.
Our research has demonstrated that providing the right nutrition at the right time to both newborns and maternal animals, especially during gestation, lactation and weaning, can have profound effects on the overall lifetime performance of the animal.
For instance, our young pig pre-starters deliver consistent results through targeted nutrition. Among our innovative nutrient solutions is Pig Net Energy, a proven nutrient that maximizes formulations to provide weight gain and steady nutrient intake. Our compound feeds of soft pellets and granules also help small pigs transition from liquids to solids.
Nutrient absorption also is critical to young fish and shrimp, as they build muscle and face numerous stresses in their environment. Our AQUAXCEL® line contributes to better nutrition and supports growth throughout the production cycles of shrimp and both warm-water and cold-water fish species.
Our Calf and Heifer program can reduce the average age of calving by 3 to 4 months and increase income by as much as $430 per cow over a lifetime of milk production.
