February 15, 2024

Dr. Tom Weber, technical manager with the Kent Nutrition Group Innovative Solutions team, sits down to discuss the benefits of EFFICOR, a ground-breaking new probiotic for the swine industry. This novel probiotic L. plantarum (ATCC PTA-127487) strain was developed in collaboration with the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture, Research & Extension with independent research trials showing that EFFICOR™ helps improve growth performance and feed efficiency in growing and finishing pigs. The findings showed that EFFICOR™ can result in nearly $2.00 per pig in feed cost savings, as a result of improved efficiencies. Innovative Solutions worked with university researchers to identify the unique strain of L. plantarum (ATCC PTA-127487), which stands out because it is of swine origin. "EFFICOR™ is a cost effective nutrition solution to help improve sustainable pork production," added Kale Causemaker, Senior Director, Innovative Solutions.
