A NOTE FROM OUR NUTRITION DEPARTMENT:
JFM Jolt Pre-Starter and Starter Program
There is an increased need for supporting young pig development starting right at weaning. This is especially true when every one percent mortality costs approximately $1.00 per pig placed. Tremendous changes occur in a young pig’s digestive capabilities between 7 and 35 days of age. Nutrient dense ingredients, such as plasma proteins and lactose, are important to help 14-day to 28-day old pigs make the transition from mother’s milk to dry feed.
Building off of the success of the long-time and respected Jones Jolt program, the newly revised Jolt Program is based on findings from Provimi research that led to a focus on feeding pigs based on age rather than weight. This allows producers to support the unique needs of young pigs by feeding the right nutrients at the right time to combat issues and ensure projected performance.
The newly revised Jolt program is designed to:
• Maintain feed intake and well-being
• Support healthy stool condition
• Optimize protein levels of diets while decreasing undigested protein
• Contains polyphenols that support antioxidant status
• Support beneficial intestinal microflora and intestinal functionality
• Optimize fibre sources and levels
The Jolt program is designed to match the nutritional needs of young pigs with highly digestible and palatable ingredients, functional proteins, and technologies that focus on supporting livability and improving the energy status of young pigs and is designed to fit the needs of normal pig flows.
