The new EU registration of Belfeed in lactating sows was published at the end of August and has entered into force on September the 19th.
The trials performed with Belfeed on lactating sows demonstrate an improve not only in fiber digestibility but also in protein and fat, for example. Such effects were already shown in other animal species and explained by the release of nutrients that are enclosed by the fiber structure. This improve in feed valorization lead to lower weight and backfat losses of the sows during lactation as well as better growth performance of the litters from the sows receiving Belfeed.
With this new registration, Belfeed is the xylanase on the EU market offering the largest possibilities of use in pigs (suckling and weaned piglets, fattening pigs and lactating sows).
Belfeed can also be used in all poultry species (major and minor species) and different production phases (fattening, breeding and laying).
