Baby Pig Restart® is a top-dress powder to encourage feed intake in young pigs at weaning.

The transition to dry feed for a weaned pig is a challenging event.  Reduction in nutrient intake sets the young pig back in development.  Baby Pig Restart® is an  attractant that entices pigs to eat dry feed more quickly.  In addition to getting the young pig back on feed more quickly, Baby Pig Restart also provides additional nutrients and energy needed to help avoid starve-outs and stunting.


Baby Pig Restart is also available in an Animal Protein Free formula, Baby Pig Restart APF.
