Swine production, in each of its breeding phases, involves facing a number of different challenges whose proper management is essential if we want to optimize the profitability of our pig farm.
Lactating stage: Healthy mothers, healthy piglets
The high mortality rates during this stage represent the main economic loss in this type of farms. Therefore, it is vitally important to ensure an adequate transfer of immunity from the mother to the piglet and a better quantity and quality of milk.
Garlicon helps mothers to optimally assimilate nutrients. In this way, suckers fed through the sow enjoy a better health, reducing the incidence of diarrhea, mortality and obtaining better weaning weights and more homogeneous litters.
Weaning stage: Helps the digestive tract to mature
Garlicon promotes the optimal development of the intestinal mucosa, enhancing the growth of the piglet and thus preventing the entry of opportunistic pathogens. In this way, it helps to protect the piglet and lowers medication costs during this critical stage.
Garlicon is similar to the performance obtained when using colistin and Zinc Oxide as growth promoters.
Unlike other commercial garlic-based products, all Garlicon batches have standardized concentration of active ingredients, thereby ensuring the repetitiveness of results under similar conditions.
Therefore, in various tests carried out in piglets on different farms, the growth results in all cases were similar to those obtained using colistin as a growth promoter:

Fattening stage: Improves productive yields
As this is the longest period, it is essential to obtain a good feed conversion ratio, which reduces feeding costs.
Optimal digestion and absorption of nutrients will allow reaching the maximum growth potential, and reducing nitrogen excretion into the environment, thus complying with environmental policies.
At the same time, episodes of swine dysentery and coccidiosis are common during this phase in addition to the strict controls for Salmonella required by legislation prior to entry into the slaughterhouse.
The protective effect of Garlicon against Salmonella has been evaluated in independent studies in which a decrease in the percentage of positive cases was observed when entering the slaughterhouse and after slaughtering (Av. Tecnol. Porc. XI (11): 34 -45 )
A healthy gut will present a balanced microbiota that will protect the animal from the decrease in productive performance that the occurrence of these incidents entails.
Garlicon OSCs promote feed consumption and use of feed and, therefore, better growth rates in bait pigs, providing a differential value to solve these nutritional and environmental challenges.
By promoting better absorption and assimilation of nutrients, Garlicon allows animals to obtain better yields even compared to healthy animals that do not consume it.
