The dark side of pig mineral nutrition

Beware the dark side of pig mineral nutrition

When it comes to your animals’ mineral diet, you’ve likely never been thinking about “Star Wars” but just like the characters of the epic movie series, you have a choice to make. Do you go with organic trace minerals, or do you turn to the dark side: inorganics?

Growing from the Gut: The impact of the pig’s microbiome

The diversity and balance of the pig's microbiome, or intestinal ecosystem, are critical to its health and performance, especially as antibiotics are reduced.
The diversity of a pig’s microbiome, or their gut’s “ecosystem”, varies along the different regions of the gastrointestinal tract, with some regions having less tolerable conditions and containing reduced microbial diversity in comparison to regions that are more favorable to microbial growth.
The challenges of modern production practices can restrict the diversity of the gastrointestinal microflora, in some instances resulting in an unhealthy imbalance, which can lead to the development of a vicious cycle of pathogen colonization and recolonization.

What are your pigs breathing in?

As we hit the mid year, producers are focusing on heat and the stress that can come with it. A major effort is put into controlling the temperature and increasing ventilation to make sure the animals have a healthy environment. With this increased ventilation, producers should also keep a close eye on what their pigs are breathing in.
