Sano Consulting Concept - Swine
The valuable lean meat content of fattening pigs depends on how the pregnant sow is fed, because the number of muscles is already determined in the womb. After the birth, the lean meat content continues to be determined by the development of the piglet and its daily weight gain. Later, in the finishing, it is important not to allow the animals to become obese but, at the same time, allow them to grow quickly and to slaughter at the right time, in order to achieve the optimum percentage of lean meat. This example again simplifies the interactions that exist between each individual phase of life and performance. Successful piglet and quality meat production is therefore only possible if the needs of the animals are optimally met in the various phases of life and performance. To meet these demands Sano developed special feeding concepts.
