VITAL is a feed solution to zinc removal. It’s a range of diets developed for piglets that will be fed without zinc in the future, focussing on supporting gut health and growth. VITAL is part of our Nutricare approach which considers the role of health, management and nutrition as part of a complete programme.
UK zinc-free production
The UK is one of the later European countries to take the step to zinc-free production. Different countries are at different stages with the Netherlands and Belgium having already completely removed zinc.
Favourite part of project VITAL
It’s always rewarding to work on a project which is directly relevant to what’s happening in the industry and solves a problem for customers. No two days have been the same whilst working on VITAL and I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside many teams across the business. It’s been such a varied project from designing the trials to planning the diets.
