What is a starter feed?

Mixture of dairy and highly digestible protein products, probiotics, acidifiers, enzymes and palatability agents (flavours and sweeteners), to be mixed with the available raw materials in every country/area/farm and finally obtain high performing prestarter and starter diets.

Complete feed or complementary feed, is the feeding administered to the animal in its daily ration. Its composition depends on the needs of the animal, contributing to assure the optimal nutritional levels for a good health and the maximum productivity that can assume the genetics of the animal that consumes it, removing the greater physiological yield without disturbing the metabolism of the animal.

In the first ages, the solid ingestion leaves from a period of adaptation of the animal to a new diet. The animal is developping its digestive and enzymatic systems, together with the additional necessity of growth in this period and the diminution of the maternal immunity. In this stage the best assimilation makes sure later diets, as long as these are formulated suitably.

Using quality feeds during the first weeks of life, we obtain much higher results on animal performance (growth, nutritional and sanitary). Using creep feeds, permits adapting the animal to the solid feed and, subsequently, improving assimilation of the following feeds. Moreover, we can obtain a progressive growth and lower mortality.
