How is Zinpro Tackling Nutrition Performance?

Zinpro - Minor Changes In Nutrition = Major Impacts On PerformanceZinpro - Minor Changes In Nutrition = Major Impacts On Performance Sow performance metrics such as pigs per litter, birth and weaning weight, and lactation feed intake are all key indicators for a sow’s ability to produce robust piglets. Positive metrics add up to better-performing pigs and higher profits for producers. Swine producers can make minor adjustments that can pay off in major ways when they customize their feed and nutrition program with performance trace minerals.
