Brookside Agra is now offering all-natural GP Pro+, a high-quality acidified nutritional protein supplement research-proven to improve pig and sow feeding performance, according to an announcement.
The company said GP Pro+ contains key nutrients including digestible sources of peptides, amino acids and trace minerals, such as: 79% crude protein, 70% soluble protein, 12% lysine and 87.5% total digestible nutrients.
Using a preparatory stabilization and acidification process, the supplement is "unique in its quality as a feed ingredient and is highly stable with moisture under 5% and a pH around 3," Brookside Agra said.
"GP Pro+ has none of the anti-nutritional factors that can be in plant-based protein sources," said Tim Nelson, vice president - animal health and nutrition sales at Brookside Agra. "When incorporated into a balanced diet, GP Pro+ drives feed intake, leading to optimal growth, condition and health."
In a recent study, naturally raised weanling pigs whose diets contained GP Pro+ ate more feed and gained more weight compared to the control group in field trials, which lasted 49-51 days, the company reported.
GP Pro+ is spray dried and packaged in the U.S. under strict FAMI-QS, Safe-Feed/Safe-Food, HACCP and Identity Preserved Standards.
