Energy swine

Mixture of essential oils and additives in microgranules to be added in feedstuffs for pigs, as piglets, growers, finishers, and sows.

For daily feedstuffs supplementation, thanks to their positive influence on daily feed intake and growth rate. In animals they are able to enhance production of digestive secretions, stimulate blood circulation, exert antioxidant properties, help reducing levels of pathogenic bacteria (e.g. Escherichia Coli, Streptococcus species, Clostridium spp.), and improve digestive immune-system.

Description

It contains:
Active principles made of a suitable mixture of specific essential oils

INDICATIONS:
Essential oils are sprayed and absorbed by suitable carrier and, then, filmed with organic coating to obtain whitish microgranules, ranging about 260-380 µm.

Thanks to its original coating layer, ENERGY SWINE is compatible with all feed additives, without interact with any enzymatic component normally present.

MAIN OBTAINED RESULTS:
IN PIGLETS:

  • Flavoring and appetizing feed in weaning period and reducing sub-clinical gastro-intestinal disorders during feed changes (from milk to grain diet) (Mellor, 2000; Franz et al., 2009)
  • Appetite enhancement and digestion improvement (mainly protein and amino acids) by increasing all digestive secretions (saliva, pancreatic, hepatic, enteric) (Kamel, 2001; Maenner et al., 2011);
  • Growth promotion by modulation of total microbial load and microbial metabolism in gut environment (Kyriakis et al., 1998; Apajalahti and Kettunen, 2006; Michiels et al., 2009);
  • Intestinal lactobacilli and enterobacteria microflora increase (Doyle, 2001; Kamel, 2001; Turner et al., 2001; Rodehutscord and Kluth, 2002; Lis-Balchin, 2003; Wenk, 2003; Lee et al., 2004; Westendarp, 2005);
  • Antioxidant and stress prevention (Sivropoulou et al., 1996; Zabielski, 1999; Manzanilla, 2004) (social and dietary stressors due to re-organization of the groups, different feed administration way, competition);
  • Immune-modulation and anti-inflammatory effects by increasing IL-10 and depressing pro-inflammatory ciytokines (Kwon et al., 2011) (for instance in prevention of hypersensitivity induced by soybean);
  • Neophobia and anorexia prevention in peri-weaning period due to several stress factors (Manzanilla et al., 2004; Oostindjer et al., 2010);
  • Higher growth post-weaning and lower stress related behaviors and diarrhea (Oostindjer et al., 2010) if associated with ENERGEO SOW;
  • Reduction of mortality and economic losses due to this particular and fragile rearing period (Ramirez 2011; Jones, 2011; Wendler and Medina, 2011)

IN GROWERS AND FINISHERS:

  • Appetite enhancement and digestion improvement (mainly protein and amino acids) by increasing all digestive secretions (saliva, pancreatic, hepatic, enteric) (Kamel, 2001; Maenner et al., 2011);
  • Reduction sub-clinical gastro-intestinal disorders during feed changes by modulation of total microbial load and microbial metabolism in gut environment and preventing production losses (Kyriakis et al., 1998; Apajalahti and Kettunen, 2006; Michiels et al., 2009);
  • Intestinal lactobacilli and enterobacteria microflora increase (Doyle, 2001; Kamel, 2001; Turner et al., 2001; Rodehutscord and Kluth, 2002; Lis-Balchin, 2003; Wenk, 2003; Lee et al., 2004; Westendarp, 2005);
  • Ammonia and CO2 emissions decrease with better conversion rate and utilization of in-diet N (Aufy and Zentner, 2012)
  • Decrease of pneumonia due to environment gas presence and insults (Aufy and Zentner, 2012);
  • Antioxidant, stress prevention, liver protection and cholesterol levels reduction (Sivropoulou et al., 1996; Zabielski, 1999; Kakimoto et al., 2000; Manzanilla, 2004);
  • Immune system stabilization and anti-inflammatory effects by increasing IL-10 and depressing pro-inflammatory ciytokines (Kwon et al., 2011) (for instance in prevention of hypersensitivity induced by soybean);
  • Enhancement of daily gain and feed conversion rate and reduction of total feed intake (Yan et al., 2012)
  • Meat quality improvement, mainly meat color, pH value and WHC (water holding capacity) and decreased cooking water losses (Chen et al., 2008; Holden et al., 1998);
  • Meat flavor, color, tenderness and overall acceptability could be improved (Krown et al., 2005; Omojola et al., 2009)

IN SOWS:

  • Digestion improvement (mainly protein and amino acids) by increasing all digestive secretions (saliva, pancreatic, hepatic, enteric) (Kamel, 2001; Maenner et al., 2011);
  • Gastro-intestinal disorders prevention by modulation of total microbial load and microbial metabolism in gut environment (Kyriakis et al., 1998; Apajalahti and Kettunen, 2006; Michiels et al., 2009);
  • Intestinal lactobacilli and enterobacteria microflora increase (Doyle, 2001; Kamel, 2001; Turner et al., 2001; Rodehutscord and Kluth, 2002; Lis-Balchin, 2003; Wenk, 2003; Lee et al., 2004; Westendarp, 2005);
  • Antioxidant, stress prevention, liver protection and cholesterol level reduction (Sivropoulou et al., 1996; Zabielski, 1999; Kakimoto et al., 2000; Manzanilla, 2004);
  • Immune-modulatory and anti-inflammatory effects by increasing IL-10 and depressing pro-inflammatory ciytokines (Kwon et al., 2011) (for instance in prevention of hypersensitivity induced by soybean);
  • Nutritional content, such as fat, protein and lactose, increase in milk, with obvious positive effects in piglets, with higher birth-to-weaning weight gain (Wendler and Medina, 2011);
  • Newborn piglets weight uniformity and weight at birth improvement by supplying PFA (Phytogenic feed additives) in the last third of gestation;
  • Higher weight of liver, pancreas and stomach, length of duodenum and small intestine in piglets due to a more rapid digestive system development.
  • Exposure flavoring of ENERGEO products in pre and post birth can cause in piglets enhanced total feed intake by avoiding neophobia, creating familiar flavor in the environment (Oostindjer et al., 2010);
  • Positive effect on piglets welfare, reducing stress-related behaviors, such as high-pitched vocalizations, escape attempts, anorexia (Oostindjer et al., 2009; Jones, 1985; Rattaz et al., 2005);
