Provimi: Reprofish piglet fishmeal research
To ensure economical production of pigs and poultry, and the current rise in fishmeal prices Provimi is emphasizing its new piglet research on fishmeal replacer: Reprofish.
Recent results indicate a significant improvement on average daily gain in a large scale piglet trial (see Table 1). This is in line with previous work done at the Provimi research farms worldwide.
Reprofish is based on Provisoy, the thermo-mechanical treated soybean meal that acts as an alternative protein source. Furthermore Reprofish is balanced on amino acids, carnitine and omega-3 to ensure the benefits as noticed from the inclusion of fishmeal.
