Vilomix project on weaning without zinc oxide has started!
To counter the problems pig producers will meet in 2022, when zinc oxide can no longer be used against weaning diarrhoea, Vilomix started a new project to work with the future challenges in cooperation with SEGES. SEGES is the Danish Pig Research Centre, that implements up to date know-how in Danish pig production.
The project started in the Summer of 2020, and action plans are already now being implemented in the Danish participating herds.
The project has a broad scope and focus on feeding which is at the core of what Vilomix does - but also hygiene and management, since the approach is to look at a lot of factors to deal with the challenges in phasing out zinc oxide.
Listen to Kristina Sørensen - product manager, swine at Vilomix - explain why Vilomix started the practical project on working with Danish swine producers on how to wean piglets without zinc oxide.
In the coming months we will publish our learnings from the swine production herds.
