Helping sows better use the feed during gestation

Proper sow nutrition during gestation will help ensure more homogenous litters with higher piglets’ weight and improved vitality. New research conducted in metabolic chambers coupled with advanced meta-genomic studies shows the effect of using the specific live yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii​ CNCM I-1079 on energy metabolism. This has practical implications on sows’ nutrition: it can be applied through a partial energy substitution, partially compensating the inclusion cost of the additive, and still getting all the benefits of a probiotic yeast.
