Increase performance and classification
Pig performance is affected by the dEB level in feed. The closer we get to provide feed with the optimal dEB value 240, the less energy is spent by the kidneys to excrete excess cations and anions. The energy saved can instead be diverted into growth.
Sodium formate was tested in the field for feed efficiency, carcass quality and economic viability. 2 kg/ton showed 3% more ADG compared to control and decrease in mortality from 2,8 to 2,0%. 3 kg/ton showed a more interesting economic profile of SEUROP classification and increased IXP/kg, resulting in an increased turnover of 3-5 euro/fattener.
