Biorigin launches new product for weaning piglets, calves

ProWean is 100% natural solution for weaning animals, promoting the best results in nutrition, intestinal health and immunity.

Weaning is a critical period in the life of piglets and calves, because the stress caused by the separation from the dam, environment change and mixing of animals from different lots weakens their immune status. Moreover, the change from a liquid to a solid diet commonly results in enteric problems.

Bearing this in mind, Biorigin presents ProWean, a complete solution especially developed to fight those problems, maximizing the performance and health of piglets, calves, kids and lambs during the weaning phase, bringing benefits to their entire lives.

Despite being developed with initial focus on young animals, ProWean is also an excellent supplement for the dry period of cows and sows, particularly for gilts and heifers after first parturition. ProWean is a highly-palatable prebiotic and protein additive, allowing better nutrient utilization, promoting intestinal health, and strengthening the immune system.

According to Roberto Vituzzo, feed business global manager at Biorigin, "ProWean was developed by Biorigin's Research and Development Center to provide one more solution to the animal production industry. ... ProWean will be initially launched in the U.S. and European markets and soon in the other regions of the world."
