5 Questions Your Swine Nutritionist Should be Asking You
Here are 5 questions Ralco nutritionists say your swine nutritionist should be asking you regularly to ensure your diets are making you money and working for your operation. (Click to expand)
Microfused® Essential Oils TechnologyMicrofused Essential Oil technology transforms essential oils and plant extracts into solutions that naturally improve the health and immunity of animals. This essential oil technology helps serve as a natural alternative to antibiotic growth promoters, giving producers more tools to fight disease challenges.
Actifibe® PrebioticActifibe Prebiotic preferentially feeds beneficial bacteria throughout the entire gut and enhances the immune system of animals. This results in animals with greater gut health, improved feed efficiency and weight gain, strenghtened immunity and less health challenges.
Microbial Catalyst® TechnologyIn ruminants, Microbial Catalyst helps improve nutrient conversion by increasing fiber digestibility to provide more energy for production and growth. In the soil, Microbial Catalyst helps make nutrients in the soil and fertilizer more available to the plant. This results in healthier crops that use less inputs.
