Beneficial effect on ovum ripening and quality
The pig has the greatest prenatal losses of all mammals. An ovulation of 30 or more results in the live birth of 12-17 piglets. The number and quality of the ova, the conditions in the uterus and the pattern of prenatal losses are important factors that work together to determine the birth weight of the piglet. The birth weight is an important measure of later animal performance and muscle gain.
Research demonstrates that enzymatically degradable carbohydrates (incl. dextrose) affect the ripening and quality of the ova. This affects the development of the piglets during gestation and also their vitality at birth. TWILMIX Sow Flush Mix supports reproduction when administered during the lactation and fallow period.
