Learn how Neopigg® Shield works

Neopigg® Shield helps you Produce. Smarter.

Neopigg® Shield was developed by Cargill in response to the growing concern about the use of antibiotics and therapeutic zinc reliance within piglet rearing. Through increasing gut health in the early life stage the 3-stage feeding concept, Neopigg® Shield, can reduce the reliance on the use of antibiotics and therapeutic zinc, whilst maintaining growth performance throughout the piglet’s life.

Piglet health and growth performance

To maintain gut health and immunity, antibiotics and therapeutic zinc are often administered. This creates a reliance on antibiotics as well as therapeutic zinc (antimicrobials). As piglets face vulnerabilities during early life, they need alternative strategies to maintain health and growth. This is where Neopigg® Shield can help.

Legislation is changing

Legislation to reduce the reliance on antibiotics started about 20 years ago. Furthermore, new legislation to contribute to the prudent use of antibiotics and to reduce the reliance on therapeutic zinc are coming down the line. So it is extra important to be prepared.

The importance of nutrition

Nutrition in the early stages of a piglet’s life can help pork producers to reduce the reliance on antibiotics and the therapeutic use of zinc, whilst supporting high growth performance. We believe piglet nutrition is an important driver to support a responsible use of antibiotics, whilst maintaining health and growth during pigs’ young animal life.

How feed can impact the digestive system

Piglet diarrhea can be a significant barrier to achieving, and maintaining, a healthy growth rate in piglets. Learn how specific nutrition can help to overcome these challenges.

Optimum feed intake contributes to good piglet growth performance

Many pig producers find their piglets refuse feed in the period immediately post weaning. Take control of piglet growth performance and find out how feeding strategies can encourage a smooth transition at weaning.

The science behind Neopigg® Shield

Ever wanted to know how nutrients work together to stimulate growth and gut health post weaning? Find out how nutrients in Neopigg® Shield help to develop the piglet's digestive system through four modes of action and how these can facilitate a reduction in the reliance on antibiotics and therapeutic zinc while maintaining growth.

Neopigg® Shield Concept: how it works

There are four modes of action which contribute to the success of Neopigg® Shield on the piglet: protein digestion, the mucin effect, immune regulation and intestinal flora. Combined the Shield modes of action can aid a reduced reliance to use of antibiotics and therapeutic zinc and help farmers to Produce.Smarter.

Protein digestion: Neopigg® Shield contains a highly digestible protein. The piglet’s growth potential will be utilized without overloading the hind gut with undigested protein.

See what Neopigg® Shield can do for you:

Mucin effect: maintains the integrity and strengthens the barrier of the intestinal wall post weaning when the gut is most vulnerable.

See what Neopigg® Shield can do for you:

Immune regulation: supports to limit the chance of large inflammation to occur and provides the building blocks for good immune system development.

See what Neopigg® Shield can do for you:

Intestinal flora: stimulates colonization of beneficial microbes in the gut, reducing the chance for pathogens to create disorders.
