SUSan Booster® in practice

Klaus Niedermayer talks about his experience

Klaus Niedermayer has no reason to be concerned anymore. He has been using the SUSan Booster® for his sows and fattening pigs on his farm for a while now. In this article he tells us about his experience with Sano’s new all-rounder.

In Dettelbach, lower Franconia everything is about the pigs. Farmer Klaus Niedermayer has a total of 150 breeding sows. He rears and fattens 4,500 farrows for his sow production. He reaches a performance of 30 farrows per sow and year.

The feed conversion ratio has been an important index for a long time. “I am always open for new ways to improve my performance”, enforces Klaus Niedermayer. That is why the farmer relies on the SUSan Booster® since it has been introduced on his farm. The SUSan Booster®helps to increase the feed conversion ratio which leads to a decrease of the feed costs.

Low intestine digestion

His ratios rely on local protein suppliers such as rape extraction shreds and peas. Most of the protein feed such as field beans and lupines contain anti-nutritive substances. These substances can decrease the feed intake, disrupt the digestion and have negative effects on the animal health. Furthermore, most of these feed components have a low intestine digestion of proteins and amino acids compared to soy extraction shreds.

Higher feed digestion

Synthetic products which produce single enzymes have always been used in the feed production. Recently they started using byproducts regarding the enzyme production. The Sano Specialty Product SUSan Booster® contains the main active substances.

SUSan Booster® - the all-rounder with a lot of advantages:

  • SUSan Booster® supports the digestion of the pigs
  • SUSan Booster® frees the nutrients of the feed which cannot be digested
  • SUSan Booster® increases the digestion of the feed

Sano Consultant Andre Kaiser knows the effect of the SUSan Booster®: “I recommend it to my customers since it has been introduced. So far I have only received good feedback.” That is why farmer Klaus Niedermayer trusts SUSan Booster® for his ratios. He reaches his goals and is more than happy with the product. “Hence I use SUSan Booster® in all ratios for my sows, farrows and fattening pigs”, says the farmer.

Special supply with active substance

The farmer also uses the following Sano Products for his sows: SUSanTrag® as breeding feed and SUSan Lac® as lactation feed. With these products he ensures that his sows are healthy and fertile. Cellusan 70® supplies a highly effective raw fiber for a healthy intestine. SanEnergy® provides an additional energy booster in the feed and helps with an efficient energy conversion in the metabolism with special active substances. 

An annual saving of 54 tons of feed

“I can save 10 to 12 kg of feed per fattening pig with the SUSan Booster®”, says Klaus Niedermayer. He is very happy with the results. “We have 4,500 fattened pigs per year and save up to 50 tons of feed”, adds Sano Consultant Andre Kaiser. “The sows can produce more milk and experience less losses during the suckling phase”, comments the farmer. The daily gains of the farrows have increased through the usage of SUSan Booster® by 50g.
