Compared to 10 years ago, litter sizes have increased tremendously, and piglets have a much higher genetic potential for growth. Together with obvious advantages, this evolution also has some potential drawbacks: lower birth weights, higher within-litter variation, and lower colostrum and milk availability per piglet . This means that safeguarding good animal performance requires a smart nutritional support well before, around and shortly after weaning.

It’s a well-known fact that the early maturation of the gastrointestinal tract is crucial for the optimal and healthy growth of the piglets. Stimulating the piglets’ gut health starts with accurate sow feeding and continues with clever concepts to promote early feed intake. A higher number of piglets eating before weaning facilitates a smoother weaning , and will have a positive effect on the animals’ overall performance.


Earlyfeed has developed early feeding solutions for piglets that are globally recognized as best-in-class. Well-balanced and innovative, they have the ability to support the complete litter right from the start and to maximize post-weaning success and profitability. A very high palatability encourages early feed intake, while sophisticated ingredients stimulate the maturation of the gastrointestinal tract and provide nutrients to reinforce your piglets’ health status.
