ANTIBIOTIC-FREE PIGLET DIETS

Zinc and copper

Zinc oxide and copper sulphate were traditional
ingredients used to control post-weaning diarrheas and even promote growth performance in relatively
healthy pigs. Up to 3,000 ppm Zn from zinc oxide and up
to 250 ppm Cu from copper sulphate were used in piglet
feeds during the first couple weeks post-weaning, but such
levels are no longer permissible in many countries for a
number of reasons. Modern alternatives in the form of
potentiated (higher surface) zinc or hydroxylated zinc and
copper salts, and even a new form of copper oxide that is
highly bioavailable, have been shown to offer a solution as
they can be used at lower levels with broadly similar results in terms of animal performance. In contrast, organic
zinc and copper forms still struggle to find their right
position in the market as inorganic products appear to be
more potent - and less costly.

Fiber

The fi rst thing considered when antibiotics
were removed from feeds was adding more
fiber. This worked in controlling diarrheas, but it also
depressed feed intake. When other means of controlling diarrheas were applied, the role of fiber was soon
forgotten, but this ingredient (or nutrient) remains a
must for any such diet. Using the right source (purified
or concentrated) avoids the problem of reduced feed
intake, helps develop a healthy microflora, and enables
the digestive tract to mature better and faster. After all,
pigs evolved to consume a high-fiber diet in nature, and
depriving them from such opportunity only hampers
their natural growth. In my opinion, a right blend of
fermentable and insoluble fibers should be supplemented by an appropriate strain(s) of probiotics to give the
developing microflora a strong boost. Finding the right
