REDUCE PRE-WEAN MORTALITY
Improved sow genetics and management practices have resulted in larger litter sizes - but also smaller average piglet weights. Pre-wean mortality rates are now higher than ever before as smaller piglets struggle to thrive.
Reduce pre-wean mortality and make farrowing care easier with a FREE bottle of First Pulse D.
FARROWING BARN REPORTS
“When I use First Pulse D, I can tell the difference the same day I give a treatment, sometimes within an hour of using the supplement. Each dose has a noticeable impact on appetite and energy.”
- Brenda R.
“First Pulse D gets them up and going to the colostrum! It’s like Red Bull for piglets!”
- Emily T.
PRE-WEAN MORTALITY IS AT A 5-YEAR HIGH
The U.S. Pork Industry Productivity Benchmark Report Data from 2017-2021 revealed that pre-wean mortality has hit an all-time high over the last five years.
2021 data showed pre-wean mortality held back production gains:
Average born alive was 13.6, +0.20 over 2020.1
Pigs weaned per sow was 11.4, +0.09 over 2020.1
Five-year high in pre-wean piglet mortality was 14.4%, +1.4% over 2020.1
Pre-weaning mortality ranges from 8.5% (best 10%) to 20.5% (worst 10%).1
First Pulse D can help.

THE PIGLET SAVER
As producers strive to wean more pigs per sow per year, every pig needs help to thrive.

First Pulse D is designed to be easy-to-use for every piglet. Administer orally 2 ml (1 pump) per piglet within the first 24 hours after birth. Repeat in 24 hours and as needed while in the farrowing room.
