Are We Getting the Best Out of Our Sows? The Use of Phytogenics in Sow Diets to Enhance Performance

As we edge ever-closer to the challenging prospect of
supplying food to an estimated 9 billion people by 2050,
armed with fewer resources and in many cases without the
use of antibiotic growth promoters (AGP), producers are
undoubtedly faced with a difficult task. In this piece, Clare
Gaukroger, R&D scientist at Anpario PLC, outlines the
situation and supplies a helpful solution. In order to meet
the future prospective consumer demand, pig producers
must increase their output of pig meat (kg/sow/year). To do
this, producers must start by improving sow performance.
