Effects of Feeding EcoCare® Feed on Nitrogen and Phosphorus Mass Balance during the Entire Finishing Period
This N and P mass balance study provides a comprehensive description of the origin and fate of N and P in association with a swine finishing operation. The study was conducted at Oklahoma State University, and the results were presented at the 2009 American Society of Animal Science Midwest Meeting (Walraven et al., 2009). Click here to read more.
Environmental issues are a growing concern. Many of them can be categorized under the following headings; air quality, manure storage and handling, manure nutrient concentration and soil nutrient levels. Read more about how EcoCare® Feed can address the entire environment question, not just parts it, through an effective and proactive feeding program for grower-finisher pigs. Click here to read more
A field trial was conducted in 2007 in Iowa to evaluate NEWtraStart™ Feed on grow-finish pig performance. Despite an unanticipated substantial health challenge, supplementation of 5 lb per ton of NEWtraStart™ Feed resulted in pigs gaining 4.1% faster, weighing 11 pounds more, and achieving 16.2% better feed conversion when compared to pigs receiving a control diet.

A trial conducted at LongView Animal Nutrition Center, MO, indicated that pigs fed EcoCare® feed had numerically greater feed intake (1.6%) and average daily gain (2.2%) and were 4 lbs heavier at the end of the study when compared to control group. Click here to read more.
A commercial field trial was performed using approx 1000 head per treatment. Effects on manure quality, odor and nutrient profile plus swine performance were recorded for grower-finisher pigs fed EcoCare® feed versus a control diet. Click here to read more.
