If a sow gives birth to more piglets than it can feed, transitioning to a nursing sow can be an obvious but time consuming option, and there’s no guarantee that it will be successful. Therefore, support your sow with a solution from Startix, tailored to your particular situation.
0 - Milk
Nutritious supplement to sow's milk
Startix Milk is the perfect standard solution to support the sow during feeding. From the 2nd day, feed the piglets in the farrowing pen using bowls. As the perfect supplement to sow’s milk, Startix Milk contributes to the piglets’ healthy growth, with a high weaning weight as a result.
1 - Colplus
When piglets’ lives are at stake
Startix Colplus is designed to supplement the shortage of sow’s milk in the first few days after birth. It is a complete feed with essential ingredients such as colostrum and easily digestible fats and proteins (including blood plasma) to stimulate the digestion. Feed your piglets Startix Colplus from the 2nd day.
2 - Colpro
For very young piglets
Startix Colpro is a high quality substitute for sow’s milk during the first days of life. It contains easily digestible fats and proteins, as well as processed grains to boost the acceptance of solid feed. Feed your piglets Startix Colpro from the 2nd day. Combine it with our Cup System for optimal results.
4 - Weanplus
Strengthens piglets and prepares the intestines
Startix Weanplus is the next step after Startix Colplus or Startix Colpro in the healthy rearing of weaned piglets. The composition promotes growth, whereby processed grains prepare the intestines for the transition to solid feed. Continuous availability through the Startix Cup System contributes to strong piglets with excellent growth potential.
5 - Weanpro
For healthy growth
Along with Startix Colpro, Startix Weanpro contributes to a higher weaning weight and better acceptance of solid feed. In addition to the necessary nutrients, Startix Weanpro contains (processed) grains to prepare the intestines. This is a prerequisite for the acceptance of solid feed and the healthy growth of your piglets.
7 - Prestaplus
The ideal transition to solid feed
Intestinal preparation in anticipation of solid feed can help prevent weaning dip and worse. The Startix nutrition programme helps you by combining nutritious milk powders with processed grains. Our prestarter Startix Prestaplus in crumb form is an excellent part of the Startix range.
Startix Cup System
For convenience and results
Hygiene is the most vulnerable aspect of conventional cup systems. We therefore paid extra attention to this in the development of the Startix Cup System. Our cup comes equipped with a special float nipple that prevents backflow and spillage. Its virtually seamless components make the system easy to clean and less susceptible to contamination.
“As a young animal feed specialist, we go beyond just looking at the composition of our piglet milk Our cup system, which was developed partly in-house, is an example of this mentality. The distinctive colour of the cup was deliberately chosen based on research showing that piglets prefer the orange.”
