NOVEL FEED NANOSUPPLEMENT FOR PREGNANT AND LACTATING SOWS
The main objective of SOWCAPS is to develop a novel feed supplement based on nanotechnology with hepatopancreatic and galactogenic protective properties to reduce pre-weaning mortality in sows and piglets.
This innovative strategy, based on soy protein encapsulation nanotechnology, will improve the health of pigs by strengthening the immune system and optimizing nutritional levels in sows and piglets using natural products and, therefore, guaranteeing greater food safety. Ultimately, SOWCAPS will reduce swine production costs, improve product quality, and care for pig welfare.
