YOUR NURSERY PROGRAM MAY BE COSTING YOU MORE THAN YOU REALIZE

It’s no secret that a good nursery program will set up your operation for success in the finishing barn. While low cost, oversimplified nursery diets can lead to issues with pig uniformity and performance.

EAT, DIGEST AND REPEAT

Ralco’s Tactical Start® nursery nutrition program is designed to help consistently deliver more full-value pigs and increase performance in the finishing barn. We formulate nursery diets that support lightweight opportunity pigs so they aren’t left behind, and help bring more full-value, uniform pigs to market.

Intake is just the start. Pigs must eat, digest and repeat.

NURSERY DIETS & GUT HEALTH

The High Cost of Low Cost Diets.

Poorly or cheaply constructed diets can cause digestive challenges that can stop or limit intake or worse, they can do irreparable damage to the gut. Once the intestinal epithelium in their gut is damaged, poor nutrient absorption and weakened immunity can impair health and digestion throughout production.

Ultra-Complex Diets Are Key

 

Tactical Start diets take complex diets to a new level. Our priority is to use easily digestible ingredients that foster digestive development and growth. Diets and ingredients are constantly evolving based on learnings in our state-of-the-art research facilities. Currently, over 50 ingredients make up our ultra-digestible, nutrient-dense nursery diets.

Look at the amount of corn and soybean meal in the diet. The higher the inclusion of these simple ingredients the less complex the diets are, and the more challenges your pigs will have digesting them.

NURSERY: AN IDEAL TIME TO INVEST

At weaning is the perfect time to invest in your pigs' value. With a high potential for efficient gain and a low feed requirement, it will never be easier or more economical to invest in high-quality nutrition.
