Lowering medicated premix use in pig feed

Innovad, the Belgian based innovative feed additives producer has launched in November 2012 at Eurotier their latest Intestinal health management program branded Lumance.

Positioned as a solution in reducing medication cost and the use of medicated premixes.

Reduced feed intake and daily gain, gut disorders, diarrhea, wet litter are all observed in animals with bacterial infections.
