Baby Pig Restart

Home/Swine/Baby Pig Restart


Baby Pig Restart® is a gruel or top-dress powder supplement for feed intake of young pigs.

Weaning can be a traumatic experience for a young pig. The sweet taste of Baby Pig Restart draws pigs in transition to dry feed, ensuring that each baby pig gets the additional nutrients and energy needed to help avoid starve-outs and stunting. All pigs, at any stage of transition, can benefit from the added electrolytes and acidification as a way to provide energy and help balance the gut pH. 


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