The Neopigg® Shield solution explained

Veterinarians play a vital role in guiding pork producers in maintaining the health of their animals. Antibiotics are critical in maintaining piglet health during times of illness and disease. With legislation to reduce the reliance on antibiotics and therapeutic zinc coming down the line, veterinarians will have a part to play in our joint effort to reduce the use of antimicrobials. Cargill has been researching nutritional alternatives for over four years, but this is only part of the solution.

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

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.

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 help reduce the reliance on the therapeutic use of antibiotics and zinc oxide 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.

• Highly digestible protein source

• Limiting protein fermentation in the gut

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.

• Increasing physical protection of the gut with dietary mucilage

• Strengthened intestinal wall barrier function

• Stimulation cell proliferation in the gut

See what Neopigg™ Shield can do for you:

Immune regulation: supports the prevention of large inflammation and provides the building blocks for good immune system development.

• Protecting cell from damage by oxidative stress caused by free radicals

• Omega -3 and -6 in right ratio to reduce inflammation

• Availability of essential amino acids as building blocks for immune system

See what Neopigg™ Shield can do for you:

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

• Limiting pathogenic proliferation and support good bacteria

• Less substrate for pathogens in the colon
