Annex I List of the names, pharmaceutical forms, strengths.
The remaining 48 piglets were allocated at weaning (28 days) to four dietary zinc treatments (100, 250, 1000 or 2500 ppm) and subsequently killed 1-2, 5-6 or 14-15 days after weaning. Study 2 included 48 piglets (six litters of eight piglets) allocated to four dietary treatments, consisting of low or high dietary zinc (100 or 2500 ppm) in combination with low or high dietary copper (20 or 175.
Copper and zinc are classified as trace minerals because they are required by pigs at relatively low levels for normal growth. When added at high dietary levels, copper (100 to 250 ppm) and zinc (2000 to 3000 ppm) can increase the growth performance of young pigs. The mechanisms by which high levels of copper and zinc improve growth rate in pigs is still unclear. C opper and zinc play.
Zinc sulfate contains 23% elemental zinc; 220 mg zinc sulfate contains 50 mg zinc. Zinc gluconate contains 14.3% elemental zinc; 10 mg zinc gluconate contains 1.43 mg zinc.
The choice fell on EP199 because Dortheasminde has been weaning piglets without zinc oxide and antibiotics for several years with the help of the piglet feed EP100i. “We supply pigs without the use of antibiotics and zinc oxide, and we have been using EP100i from European Protein for the last 5-6 years to ensure high gastrointestinal health for the piglets.
The objective of the Zero Zinc Summit was to present and share ways to reduce the use of therapeutic levels of Zinc and other minerals in piglet diets, currently used as a tool to control post-weaning diarrhoea. The summit was also an opportunity for suppliers of potential alternative to Zinc Oxide to present their research and findings.
Zinc has been very efficacious in reducing post-weaning diarrhea, whereas animal-derived peptides are suggested to improve the growth performance of weaned piglets.
Antibiotics and therapeutic zinc oxide are often used to avoid post-weaning scours. Due to evolving European legislation pig producers in Europe will need to reduce the reliance on antibiotics and therapeutic zinc in their production approach. Nutrition can help to support piglet gut health and reduce the occurrence of piglet scours whilst.
