Improving the Urogenital Health and Reproductive Performance of Sows with Jefo’s Precision Nutrition

Improving Urogenital Health and Reproductive Performance
with Jefo’s Precision Nutrition

Jefo’s Protected Organic Acid solution for sows focuses on Precision Nutrition to improve urogenital health, farrowing rate and mortality in sows and piglets.

Sporadic urogenital infections are among the most common infections found in the sow herd, but often difficult to pinpoint and diagnose. This can cause a domino effect within the herd.

Problematic domino effect:

Protected Organic Acids are key to sow health and optimized reproduction

Urogenital health is associated with infections in the urinary and reproductive tracts, which can result in health challenges and low or inconsistent reproductive performance.

Genetics have improved litter size but in turn reduced birth weight of piglets; leading to increased pre-wean mortality. Reducing pathogenic bacteria in sow feces can reduce scours and pre-wean mortality in piglets.

Sow health and productivity in the herd is essential for optimal production. This is why urogenital health is important!
