Vitamin Supplementation in Young Pigs
Over the last 4 to 5 years there have been more cases of sub-optimal vitamin D status in young pigs. Experience from producers and vets suggest that the Peri-weaning Failure to Thrive Syndrome (PFTS) is also related to suboptimal vitamin D.
Not All Bugs Are Bad: Let's Talk About DFMs
What does a bee, the flu, Bugs Bunny, and bacteria all have in common? Bugs! Although often enough, our first impression of a bug is usually something that isn’t favored, but there are also a lot of bugs that can help out our livestock production systems throughout the course of the year. A DFM is a direct fed microbial, a product that contains live, viable bacteria or yeast. They can be fed to livestock on a daily basis or whenever animals are feeling stress or production challenges.
Lessons Learned from Heat Stress
Summer is officially here whether we are ready or not. Last weekend’s heat wave was a reminder to many producers how tough summer heat and humidity can be on cattle.

Piglet Nutritional Challenges at Weaning
One of the biggest challenges pigs go through in their lives is the first few days after they are weaned. This applies to all mammals as each of them are given special survival tools from their mothers. While the macro nutrients found in sow's milk such as protein and fat are required for piglet growth and development, sow's milk also contains micro components which are just as important and even more challenging to replace when piglets transition to a dry diet. Two of the most critical micro components are immunoglobulins and nucleotides.
Cost of Missing a Feed Budget in Finishing Pigs
Pork producers use feed budgets to more accurately feed a group of pigs. Feed budgets should be calculated by pounds per head for each ration whenever possible. Feeding based off of days does not account for intake fluctuations created on stocking density, health, and environment. The simplest information can be the most difficult to get accurate. Starting head count and starting weight is all that is needed to do an accurate feed budget.
Finishing Strong: Pre-Harvest Management Strategies
We are currently in the thick of our annual climb in U.S. beef production and fed cattle marketings which seasonally begins in April and runs through June. While most producers devote a considerable amount of time and effort into starting cattle on feed (and rightfully so), little attention is often paid to cattle once they hit the typical “cruise control” point where they are on a full-fed finishing ration and most health concerns are in the rear-view mirror. The 150 plus days cattle spend on feed can all be undone by a poor finish; no different than your favorite baseball team blowing a 5 run lead in the ninth inning. While the bulk of the work may be done, there are still management strategies to keep in mind to ensure cattle finish strong and decrease the odds of having one of those “what in the world happened?” moments when looking back at your grade sheets and closeout reports.
