Making a smooth transition for weaning pigs from the farrowing room means getting them hydrated and consuming feed in the first 24 hours.
Tonisity PxW utilizes the same highly palatable flavor profile available in the Tonisity Px product used in farrowing. However, PxW nutrition is built to be delivered to newly weaned pigs through a water medicator application, to drive water intake, provide basic nutrition, and encourage pigs to eat.
Acknowledging data presented showing increased water intake in weaned pigs, North Carolina State University's Mark Knauer asked Tonisity's director of Technical Services Mark Eisenhart if that translated into an increase in feed intake as well.
"The principle that we're hanging our hat on," Eisenhart said, "is that increased water intake will lead to increased feed intake, which will then lead to good outcomes from increased weight or good starts."
