Brookside Agra Now Offering Energy Rich Yogurt Product for Suckling/Weaning Piglets

(O’Fallon, IL, July 22, 2014) – We all know that yogurt is tasty, can aid in digestive intolerance and is nutritionally rich in protein, calcium, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. All of the benefits that humans get from eating yogurt are now being enjoyed by suckling/weaning piglets in the form of YoghurLac introduced by Brookside Agra.

YoghurLac is a concentrated and energy-rich, acidified powder yogurt product for weaning and weak, suckling piglets. Composed of milk powder, dried vegetable products, glucose, skimmed milk powder, electrolytes, sodium chloride, citric acid and lactic acid bacteria, YoghurLac helps to promote healthier intestinal function, improve piglet health, and improve feed intake and growth performance.  With a shelf life of two years when kept dry in the bucket, YoghurLac  is ready to mix with water anytime you need it, and it is at least 25% cheaper than dairy yogurt, and just as nutritional.

Milk Powder – provides easily absorbed nutrients and increased palatability

Lactic Acid Bacteria – stabilizes the intestinal system

Citric Acid – gives a fresh taste and lowers pH

Lactose – milk sugar, an effective and easily metabolized energy source

Electrolytes – ensures optimum salt and fluid balance in the intestine

YoghurLac is typically given to piglets during the first week of life in large litters where the sow is nursing many piglets, the sow does not give a sufficient amount of milk, there is risk of diarrhea or the litter has many small and weak piglets.

In post weaning piglets, YoghurLac may be given to litters or piglets that have fallen behind and need extra care, are suffering from diarrhea or have just received an antibiotic treatment.

“We identified a need in the pig farming community for a product that could provide a healthy nutrient supplement to weak, suckling and weaning piglets, but yet was cost effective and promoted healthier intestinal function. We found that in the mix-your-own YoghurLac,” said Brookside Agra General Manager Chad Vaninger. “It is so easy to use and we are seeing great results in the piglets that are consuming it. They are healthier and have more energy.”
