Delacon launches phytogenic for swine at EuroTier
On the opening day of EuroTier 2016 in Hanover, Germany, Delacon launched a new phytogenic for growing-finishing pigs on the US, Asian and European markets.
Other regions will follow.
In order to realise the full growth potential of fattening pigs, optimal intestinal conditions are needed to maximise nutrient digestion and utilisation. Aromex® Pro has been introduced to meet this need of growing-finishing pigs.
Aromex® Pro contains micro-encapsulated essential oils proven to enhance the secretion of digestive juices and provide antioxidant properties, as well as saponins that reduce ammonia production.
Studies have shown that the product has beneficial effects on nutrient digestibility, body weight gain (+5.1%), feed conversion ratio (-3.5%) and stress tolerance. Moreover, Aromex® Pro leads to a significant reduction of ammonia per kg body weight gain up to about 25%.
The product is applied "on-top" in the feed ration with the general dosage recommendation of 100 g/tonne in pig feed and is available to farmers from manufacturers of pre-mixtures, mineral feeds and compound feeds.
For more information on Aromex® Pro, please visit Delacon at EuroTier: Hall 21, booth F30.
