KEEP NURSERY PIGS OUT OF THE SICK PEN
Stressed nursery pigs are up against the clock. The longer pigs go without drinking and eating, the greater their chances are of falling behind and entering the sick pen.
Get nursery pigs transitioned fast and drinking and eating from day one with Essential-Lyte™.
“We wanted our pigs to start quicker in the nursery. Even though we creep feed we had challenges with our pigs being interested in nursery feed at weaning. But if they’re drinking and getting the vitamin E and D and the other nutrients in Essential-Lyte, it seems to really stimulate their appetite and make getting them started easier.”

MOST STRESSFUL EVENT IN A PIG'S LIFE
When pigs are transitioned to the nursery, they undergo one of the most stressful periods of their life - weaning. The nursery is a new environment with no sow for food or comfort. Combined, these stressors often result in pigs with a suppressed appetite who refuse feed.
If weaned pigs go beyond 36 hours without eating and drinking, they’re unlikely to survive.1
Without food and water, a pig’s immune system weakens, increasing their likelihood of sick pen isolation and mortality.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
"After months of struggling with a persistent health issue in the nursery and unthrifty pigs, we tried Essential-Lyte. Soon our pigs were thriving and on feed easier. Now we administer this product to every group entering the nursery, so our pigs get on feed fast and get a boost of immunity from day one."

"Our nursery was facing high mortality rates of about 20% from slow starting pigs that wouldn’t eat. To help, we tried Ralco's water additive Essential-Lyte. Almost immediately, feed intake went up drastically and the enteric issues stopped. Our death rate came down to just 2%, and now every group entering the nursery is given Essential-Lyte to get pigs started and set them up for success."

"As a consultant, I help swine producers find solutions to their unique challenges that come with antibiotic-free operations. A key to avoiding health issues is getting pigs started well. I suggest Essential-Lyte for every nursery group. My customers see remarkable results in their pigs. They report that the animals eat and drink quickly, leading to evident full bellies and active behavior. When health problems arise (which is often inevitable), they find that their pigs stay on feed longer, resulting in fewer poor quality animals and more consistency across groups.
