Today’s agricultural sector must provide for a growing population with increasing food, feed and fuel demands. One of them is the growing demand for meat products, rising approximately 2% each year. This calls for both efficient and animal-friendly farming, on a global scale.
Pig farmers know that one of the critical phases in raising piglets is the weaning phase, where the young animals leave the mother. This switch to a solid diet puts their digestive system under stress. They require easily digestible food to help them move through this phase quickly, with healthy results.
One of the natural solutions we have developed is MucoPro®. This product is derived from porcine mucosal tissue from pig intestines, one of the animal by-products Darling Ingredients processes. Our own R&D as well as scientific studies have shown that MucoPro's high amino acid and peptide content contributes to reinforcing piglet gut defense systems and improving their feed intake... helping to grow healthy pigs for our world's food supply.
Turning residual animal by-products into an added-value protein ingredient for animal feed.
Scientifically proven to have positive effects on gut defense systems and the feed intake of young animals.
Helps farmers raise healthy animals by reducing stress on their digestive system.
BY REINFORCING THE GUT DEFENSE SYSTEM OF PIGLETS DURING WEANING, MUCOPRO IMPROVES THEIR FEED INTAKE.
