Tonisity International are delighted to announce the launch of the Tonisity Total Programme. Where most products feed the pig, this programme is designed to feed the gut of piglets at different stages of their production lifecycle; in the farrowing house, at weaning, and for weaned or fattening pigs. The Tonisity Total Programme helps to improve gut health performance of pigs from day two, right through to finish.
The programme consists of two key products: Tonisity Px™ and Tonisity PxW™ WeanBetter. Tonisity Px is the first isotonic complementary feed for pigs, which can be used as early as day two of life, that feeds protein, key amino acids and nutrients to new-born piglets, resulting in greater survivability and weight gain. Production trials carried out globally, have shown a reduction of pre-weaning mortality by 20 to 30% on average, which means an extra one-to-two piglets can be weaned per sow per year. Furthermore, Tonisity Px reduces stress and facilitates a faster transition to solid feed.
Tonisity PxW WeanBetter is a new, concentrated solution that is designed to be administered to weaning-age pigs through ordinary water lines. It is a follow-on solution for weaned pigs that were originally on Tonisity Px in the farrowing stage. The palatable formula attracts pigs to the water supply to consume more water post-weaning. The flavour profile evokes a memory response in pigs who were previously on the starter formula of Tonisity Px. By improving water intake, you can improve feed intake. It helps to drive growth with positive effects up to market.
Tonisity’s Managing Director, Mathieu Cortyl, stated, “The Tonisity Total Programme is showing excellent results through the production lifecycle of these pigs. We have run trials in a number of countries across the globe, showing reduced pre-weaning mortality, increased weight gain pre and post weaning, more heavier pigs per litter and, most importantly, clear improvements in return on investment.”
Tonisity have pioneered disruptive technologies, that use an isotonic solution, to deliver key ingredients that nourish the cells along the small intestine. Lifelong benefits for pigs can be improved by addressing intestinal health from the first week of life. It has also been shown that the Tonisity Total Programme gives the biggest returns when used across all pigs, not just the small ones.
