Fibrafeed lignocellulose is specifically recommended as a dietary supplement for gestating and lactating sows, as well as for weaning piglets.
In ad libitum feeding of pregnant sows, Fibrafeed lignocellulose prolongs the feeling of satiety thanks to the high water-holding capacity. Fibrafeed accelerates the intestinal passage time, therefore, prevents constipation; it does not hinder the digestibility of proteins and improves the general reproductive capacity.
Fibrafeed is also extremely useful in piglet feed because it naturally binds to the acid present in the stomach of piglets and protects them from the pathogens of diarrhoea.
Fibrafeed has an innate ability to absorb water, therefore it increases the viscosity of sow faeces. The advantages are two-fold; barn cleaning is made easier and therefore, the risk of disease is considerably reduced as the accelerated intestinal passage reduces the chances of constipation in sows before farrowing and consequently the risk of MMA (Mastitis, Metritis and Agalactia).
Substantially, Fibrafeed does not contain nutrients and quantities of elements such as calcium or phosphorus. For this reason, it can be added to the normal feed ration that has already been calculated for pregnant sows, reducing the risk of MMA (Mastitis, Metritis and Agalactia).
Fibrafeed is totally free of mycotoxins. The abortion rate caused by mycotoxins is closely linked to the use of an uncontrolled sources of crude fibre. Fibrafeed lignocellulose, on the other hand, eliminates any risk of mycotoxins being present in the ration.
Fibrafeed’s water-holding capacity is over 450%. No other crude fibre that is commonly used has this feature: wheat semolina absorbs around 190% water, whereas husk absorbs about 270%, and sugar beet pulp reaches 340%.
Fibrafeed naturally swells in the sow’s stomach giving the sow a long-lasting feeling of satiety: it avoids overfeeding (with the ad libitum system), effectively eliminating the risk of adiposity and decreasing the caloric value of the ration, guaranteeing the animal’s health.
Fibrafeed is a completely natural product, free from any animal-based ingredients. In systems of limited nutrition, the positive effects are best achieved by adding from 1 to 2.5% of fibrous-cellulose to the ration. It is important to ensure that animals drink enough water, especially during hot spells. When weaning piglets, fibrous-cellulose can increase the intestinal villous height and regulate inflammatory markers to prevent diarrhoea with an overall positive effect on their health.
