Reduce enteritis and support gut health without antibiotics…
In an industry where the use of anti-biotics is being discouraged and reduced, producers have to look at alternative strategies to control disease on farm. DeviGuard™ is an encapsulated blend of fatty acids, nutrients associated with supporting early gut development and as a result, improved immunity.
Trial on the effect of DeviGuard™ on PCV
Research was carried out to investigate the effect of DeviGuard™ upon PCV. Pigs with PMWS were fed DeviGuard™, and later treated with a vaccine. The effect on mortality and weight at stage 1 and 2 are shown below:
PCV + DeviGuard™
PCV + DeviGuard™ + vaccine
Stage 1 weight (kg)
Stage 2 weight (kg)
Healthy, established villi maximise Stunted, undeveloped villi result in
surface area for nutrient absorption nutrients not being absorbed and being excreted
Meta-analysis on DeviGuard™ performance
During the lifetime of DeviGuard™, Devenish have conducted a significant amount of trials across the UK, Ireland, continental Europe and the US. In total 19,037 pig’s have been trialled (9,731 on a control diet and 9,306 on DeviGuard™).
A meta-analysis of the results has shown that DeviGuard™ can deliver a range of lifetime performance improvements, arguably as the animal has been less susceptible to challenge and the villi have been developed, providing more surface area for the uptake of nutrients. These benefits have included:
- Improved Average...
