Blue2

Description

Blue2® is a electrolyte supporting hydration and water intake in pigs of all ages.

Blue2® is a Nutrient Dense Liquid that contains energy, electrolytes, and acidification.  This product has been scientifically formulated to reach optimum osmolarity for improved rehydration.

Enhanced osmolarity facilitates water transport and absorption.  When pigs are stressed and unfamiliar with their environment, offering Blue2 for 3 days provides the critical hydration and energy pigs need to recover quickly.  Acidification helps maintain a low stomach pH aiding digestion and prevention of bacterial growth.  In addition, using Blue2 in the drinking water functions as a very effective attractant helping increase weaned pig water consumption.  Blue2 is a ready to use stock solution and easily delivered in a proportioner, making it an ideal product for the weaned pig.
