Protein concentrate for piglets dietsSpeaker: Aloys Laue, Technical sales manager Agro Korn, nutritionist
Vigorous piglets with AlphaSoy. Agro Korn has developed a feed concept, where the protein concentrate AlphaSoy is the bearing element. In a large scale trial with 3,600 piglets the protein concentrate was tested with good results. Results showed that the feed containing the protein concentrate containing gives healthy piglets, higher weaning weight and a financial return to pig producers. During the trial there were no signs of diarrhoea and mortality was very low. The trial confirms in all aspects that this protein concentrate is a great protein source for piglets.


Replacement of acid components in pig dietsSpeaker: Attila Kovacs, Biomin , Global product line manager - Acidifiers
Organic acid use in piglet diets can be considered routine nowadays. Yet, high levels of organic acids in feed formulation take up a lot of otherwise useful space in the feed. Replacing a portion of organic acids with a more powerful additive can create room to further enhance feed formulation or add more economical raw materials at no additional cost.
