Today’s agricultural sector has to provide for a growing population with increasing demands. One of them is the growing demand for meat products. This calls for both efficient and animal-friendly farming, on a global scale. Pig farmers know that one of the critical phases in raising piglets is the weaning phase, where the young animals leave the mother and need to switch their diet. This puts their digestive system under stress. They need easily digestible food that helps them get through this phase, fast and healthy.
One of the natural solutions we have developed to address this, is a product called MucoPro®. It is derived from porcine mucosal tissue from pig intestines, one of the animal by-products Darling Ingredients is sourcing. R&D showed its high amino acid and peptide content and scientific studies have confirmed that it contributes to reinforcing gut defense systems and improves the feed intake of young animals. Thus, making the piglets stronger.
