Weaning

Help Pigs Coast Through Weaning

Weaning Px Benefits

Tonisity Px can dramatically improve overall weight gain by helping pigs stay on their feed as they move from the farrowing crate to larger nursery pens.

 

Weaning can be a difficult time for young piglets, affecting them both physiologically and behaviorally and can often result in weight loss and mortality. When Tonisity Px is mixed with dry feed to make the Px-gruel, piglets will recognize the familiar (and delicious) taste, thereby maintaining their average daily gain throughout the first week after weaning.

 

Starting from 2-3 days before weaning, supply the Tonisity Px solution so that the animals can get acquainted with the highly palatable Px flavor. As weaning occurs during the 2-3 day period, this same solution is combined with creep feed to form the Px-gruel, effectively relieving the starvation period that pigs will often undergo during this time.

Weaning Using Px

In all situations, 500 mL (1 pint) of 3% Px solution per litter should be given for at least 2 days before weaning. This will give the intestinal enterocytes an energy boost and will also acquaint the pigs with the taste and smell of Px.

 

At least one day before weaning, start gruel to help pigs transition through weaning.

If piglets have been given creep feed in farrowing, give 2.5 kg (5 lb) gruel / litter the day before weaning followed by 20 kg (45 lb) gruel per 100 pigs in weaning pens for another 2-3 days.

If piglets have NOT had access to creep feed in farrowing, give 1 kg (~ 2 lb) of gruel / litter the day before weaning followed by 20 kg (45 lb) gruel per 100 pigs in weaning pens for another 2-3 days.

Caution! Make sure to prepare fresh liquid Px solution daily.
