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 with positive consequences up to slaughter.

Pour the Tonisity Px solution on top of the dry feed, or prepare a gruel, for at least 3 days before weaning 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. Tonisity Px provides the necessary energy boost and hydration required during the stressful weaning phase.

Px Science

Weaning / Using Px

Pour the Tonisity Px solution on top of dry feed, or prepare a gruel, for at least 3 days before weaning.

Ratio

1.5 part of Tonisity Px solution for each part of dry feed (e.g. 1.5 litre of solution for each kg of feed)

Quantity

Target a quantity of 1.5 litre of solution + 1 kg of feed per litter per day (or 120 ml of solution + 80 g of feed per piglet per day), given in 2 to 3 meals. If possible, supply the Tonisity Px solution 2 to 3 days after weaning (100 ml per piglet / day)

If possible, supply the Tonisity Px solution 3 days after weaning (100ml per piglet/day)"

Tonisity Px Solution on Top of Dry Feed

100ml per piglet/day

Mixing Instructions

For Liquid/ On Top of Feed

The Tonisity Px solution can also be used to prepare a gruel to encourage feed intake after weaning. To prepare 20 kg of gruel, mix 12 L of Tonisity Px solution with 8 kg of dry feed and give 20 kg gruel per 100 pigs in weaning pens for 2-3 days
