Gut health and pig performance are high priorities at Hubbard Feeds. Higher feed intake can lead to longer intestinal villa, improved absorption of nutrients and the reduction of disease-causing bacteria such as E. coli. As a result, gut health in a young pig is the foundation for consistent intake and strong performance.

GutCIE (Gut Conditioner, Intake Enhancer) has been shown to increase feed intake by 5 percent and average daily gain by 5 percent in the first 21 days in the nursery, compared to the control group. This results in pigs being about 1.7 lbs. heavier in just three weeks.

“A group of pigs that are not slowed in the starter phases by gut problems will have less weight variation in the finisher and a higher percentage of full value pigs at market weight,” reports Dr. Stewart Galloway, Senior Swine Nutritionist at Hubbard Feeds.

Hubbard Feeds is building a platform of products and technologies to provide optimal gut health to young pigs, and GutCIE is just one of those compounds. For more information, contact Hubbard Feeds at 1.800.869.7219 or at www.hubbardfeeds.com.
