Benefits of Minerals for Pigs
Good mineral nutrition is essential for pig health, and it’s essential that your herd receives adequate daily vitamins and minerals as part of a balanced diet.
Minerals serve a variety of structural and metabolic functions in swine and are found in all body components, including bone, muscle, internal organs, blood, and other tissues and fluids of the body.
With the impending ban of the use of Zinc Oxide in Pig diets, Terra NutriTECH has a solution. We have teamed up with Auranta and have launched a product that can help reduce weaning issues and get the most out of your herd.
The TERRA NutriTECH OPIS Controller can deliver liquid supplements through the water system of any yard where pigs access their drinking water through a centralised water system and do not have access to alternate sources. Blends of minerals, amino acids, vitamin mixes, acids, phytogenics, enzymes and probiotics are just some of the products that can be added and they can be administered either proportionally or on a grams per head per day basis. Up to 6 supplements can be dosed and the timer function can be used to control dispensing at different times if desired. The full range of reporting functions around product usage, livestock numbers and stock levels by product is also available.
The system can be customised to have alarms set for abnormal water flows which will alert the farm in the event of a deviation by push notification. These alarms can either be leaks, pump failure or stuck ballcocks and can be set to suit the conditions on each individual farm.
Data around water consumption, supplement usage and livestock numbers are available to farms and can be integrated with other farm management systems in most cases.
