Crude fibres have a positive impact on the animal welfare of breeding sows. The solubility and fermentability of the fibres are essential for this effect to take place. Insoluble and non-fermentable crude fibres such as our JELUVET® lignocellulose improve the sow’s well-being. But that’s not all! A field trial conducted in Brazil shows that our JELUVET® lignocellulose also has a positive influence on piglet breeding.
The substance flow balance of the new German Fertiliser Application Ordinance forces agricultural enterprises to set the phosphorus content of the feed accurately. Consequently, there is little room for variation in the phosphorus content. Different crude fibre sources can add different amounts of additional phosphorus to the ration. Lignocellulose, which is low in phosphorus, is especially suitable for use as a crude fibre component for a phosphorus-reduced feeding strategy.
On 28 February 2014, JELU-WERK was represented at the Pig Symposium in Poland – the annual information event of the feed supplier Cargill. About 250 of the largest Polish pig breeders accepted the company's invitation.
