Pharmacosmos launches injectable iron for pigs in the Baltics

27-08-2012 | | |

Danish iron supplier Pharmacosmos has gained access to distribute its injectable iron product Uniferon to the pig industry in the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Uniferon will be marketed through Magnum Veterinarija, a veterinarian-focused partner based in Estonia with subsidiaries in Latvia and Lithuania.

Jens Fabricius, vice president, marketing & business operations at Pharmacosmos, commented: “Pig production in the Baltics is becoming increasingly focused on global best practice and hence also the generally accepted standard of administering iron to newborn piglets to promote optimal growth and general health as well as avoiding detrimental anaemia. Pig producers in the Baltics are thus becoming increasingly demanding and we are glad that we are now able to support their efforts.”
