Kemin Animal Nutrition Solutions for Swine

Kemin helps customers raise healthy pigs by providing superior nutritional benefits in every stage of life. Increasing performance, improving health and reducing environmental impacts while meeting the animals’ nutritional needs leads to increased profitability. Nutritional solutions are essential in preventing performance issues before they occur. Kemin focuses on two key swine nutrition platforms:

  • Minerals
  • Biosurfactants

Minerals in Swine Production

Trace minerals play a critical role in the metabolic functions of pigs including support for growth, development, immune function and reproductive performance. The beneficial response from proper mineral supplementation can be observed throughout a pig’s life. The proper amount of bioavailable minerals need to be supplemented to support the hemostatic state of the animal during all phases of life. KemTRACE® Chromium and KemTRACE Zinc® are staples to meet nutritional requirements of swine diets as recommended by the Nutritional Requirements Council (NRC).

Biosurfactants—Improving Digestibility of Nutrients in Feed

Improving digestibility and utilization of energy-rich feed ingredients can help pork producers achieve both efficiency and profitability. By optimizing the multi-step fat digestion process, biosurfactants help improve utilization of energy from feed, resulting in improved feed conversion rates, lower production costs, improved profitability and animal performance. Produced from lecithin using a unique and patented enzymatic process, lysolecithins in LYSOFORTE® act as powerful biosurfactants to maximize digestion and absorption of energy-rich ingredients like fats, oils and fat-soluble nutrients – like vitamins.
