Today's production trends establish the need for superior young pig feeds.  As days-to-market have progressively decreased (and market weights have increased), the birth-to-50 lbs. period has become an increasingly important phase of the total production time. Performance during this critical period impacts pig growth all the way to market.  The UltraCare® feed program is a flexible, nutritionally-sound program from Land O'Lakes Purina Feed and Viafield that provides superior intake, optimal gain and supports immunocompetence  during this period. CLICK HERE for a printable copy of Viafield's recommended feeding program for young pigs and a product overview.

UltraCare starters provide the right balance of essential nutrients for pigs to maintain optimal growth at each stage and contain proprietary MpDTM technologies that give your pigs an appetite for growing and help you solve the challenge of easing young pigs from milk to dry feed. UltraCare technologies work together with scientifically formulated natural appetite stimulants to increase intake and enhance digestion efficiency.  CLICK HERE for more information about UltraCare feeds.
