Ralco announced today that it has launched Birthright™ Bridge, a new product mixed with water and fed as a gruel to get baby pigs on dry feed fast. Birthright Bridge is highly digestible natural nutrition for young pigs that bridges the gap from milk to feed and promotes gut health. The product does not require a veterinary feed directive (VFD) because it is formulated with patent-pending natural Strong Animals® technologies that help overcome challenges.
Transitioning from a milk to feed diet has always been one of the greatest times of stress for young pigs and swine producers. Birthright Bridge is the evolution of Birthright™ Baby Pig Milk Replacer, long recognized as the gold standard of milk replacers. Birthright Bridge eases the transition by combining the foundational technologies of Birthright with proprietary Ralco nutrition technology.
“When I developed Birthright Baby Pig Milk Replacer, I partnered with Ralco and we forever changed nutrition for baby pigs,” said John Vignes, founder of Advanced Birthright Nutrition. “Birthright Bridge is that same type of revolutionary product. Producers have always struggled to get young pigs on dry feed. Birthright Bridge is exactly what the name says, it’s a bridge that utilizes proprietary technologies and formulation to promote feed intake and boost immunity when pigs need it the most.”
Birthright Bridge is formulated with exclusive Strong Animals technologies that make it a product unlike any other, Vignes said. Microfused® Essential Oils, Actifibe® Prebiotic, and Life Advantage Protein technologies promote gut health and nutrient absorption, while egg antibodies naturally support immunity. Birthright Bridge also begins planting the seeds of Ralco’s Tactical Start™ feeds by introducing crystalline amino acids and supplemental enzymes to enhance gain and efficiency.
“This is a very effective product that the industry has been waiting for. So many times we have heard from producers that they would do just about anything to get young pigs on feed quickly and easily. Birthright Bridge is an easy product to use and it gets the job done. We have listened to the producers and developed a product to fit their need of promoting gain of weaned pigs which research has shown to improve nursery and finisher performance,” Vignes said.
