Easy transition to Grober’s Porlet – Piglet Pre-Starter (0381)

  • A specially formulated “gruel” pre-starter for excellence in raising early weaned piglets and/or supplementing oversized litters
  • Shown to improve growth rates, piglet health and ease of weaning
  • Use for undersized piglets to achieve weaning weight

Supplemental feeding to sow’s milk

  • Supplementary milk can be introduced to the piglets as soon as 2-4 days of age
  • The milk solution can be offered via a nipple bottle or an open recipient
  • Both have to be maintained clean, particularly the recipient that has been contaminated by urine or feces

Feeding orphaned piglets

  • For piglets reared completely away from the sow, it is best if they can receive sow’s milk for the first 2-4 days. If not possible, prepare a mixture of colostrum supplement and milk replacer for that same period of time
  • Weaning can be achieved when the piglets are consuming a sufficient quantity of pre-starter
