Nutrition for Successful Swine Production
Swine come in many breed varieties, colors, shapes and sizes and are a popular form of livestock vital to the economy in many parts of the world. The majority of swine are used for human food, but also supply skin, fat and other materials for use as clothing, ingredients for processed foods, cosmetics, and in medical capacities. Swine are also exhibited at agricultural shows, judged either as stud stock compared to the standard features of each pig breed, or primarily on their suitability for slaughter to provide premium meat.
Genetics, herd health and management, and vital nutrition are key elements in successful swine production. Many nutritional factors must be balanced throughout herd development:
- Optimizing reproductive performance with targeted nutrients
- Targeting performance and economical concerns with specific ingredients, effective formulations, and mixing instructions
- Maximizing lean growth rates with proper amino acid levels and ratios
- Promoting proper skeletal development with calcium to phosphorus levels
