Alltech has introduced Triad, an innovative solution that promotes successful farrowing and pig livability through a palatable, proprietary blend of Alltech ingredients. Peer-reviewed research has suggested that supplementation of these compounds in combination can support the parturition process, reduce the incidence of stillborn pigs, and boost the number of wean pigs per sow.
“It is exciting to bring a solution to market with such a strong return opportunity,” said Andy Rash, general manager of Alltech’s U.S. swine business. “Minimizing stillborns and low-viability pigs at the rate in which we can with Triad is a direct improvement in profit, as more pigs equal more profit.”
Sow throughput can be compromised by a higher incidence of stillborn pigs and pre-wean death losses, decreasing overall performance for swine producers. Effective during short feeding intervals, Triad supports sows during parturition and lessened pre-wean mortality, driving more pigs and more pounds long-term.
“Helping producers keep more pigs they work so hard to produce in the production chain is a great challenge to address,” Rash said. “The industry makes such a large investment in total pigs born but focusing on pigs weaned is the real opportunity.”
