Piglet and Swine Feed
The Emsland Group produces and markets an extensive product range of ingredients for poultry, swine, ruminants and other animals. Our products are used in the following applications:
Mixed feed, which is completely mixed industrially or combined in accordance with the respective needs of the specific type of animal (poultry, swine, ruminants, fish, rabbits, goats, sheep and other). Mixed feed is mainly made of corn (energy source) and peas (protein source) as well as smaller volumes of vitamins and minerals. Other additives such as natural health components, organic acids, aromatic substances and pigments can be added, if required.
Pre-mixed feed are components of supplementary ingredients to the mixed feed, and more specific than vitamins and minerals. They are mixed with the main ingredients to produce the required mixed feed. Pre-mixed feed are used in small volumes, but with extreme precision. They have a share of 0.1 to 5 % of the total mixed feed.
Large amounts of proteins are added to pre-mixed feed in the case of concentrated feed. This is normally supplied to farmers who mix the concentrated feed in the main components of the mixed feed such as corn. Concentrated feed makes up approx. 5-15 % of the feed.
Specialities include animal feed produced for special groups of animals such as young animals (e.g. milk substitute for calves or first feed for piglets) or cattle feed additives for special purposes (products assisting health development as well as alternatives for antimicrobial growth stimulants).
Piglets are often fed with food additives in order to ensure health and stimulate growth. The Emsland Group can also provide a healthy alternative in this case to other chemical compositions.
In order to meet the special requirements of our customers, we have used close customer contact in order to create customized products for their needs.
