What Smells Sweeter Than Pig Performance?

EcoCare® feeds help manage manure while optimizing feed efficiency and performance.

EcoCare® Feeds Are a Convenient Choice to Manage Pig Manure

Sure, sometimes less is more. But what if you could have both?

EcoCare® feeds are the only feed-through program designed to deliver ROI through pig performance and improved manure management at the same time. 

With EcoCare® feeds, you can have pigs that perform and manure that’s easier to handle.

Less Waste and More Convenience

High-protein, high-fiber diets can increase pig water intake, add bulk to manure and make manure stickier. Pigs fed EcoCare® feeds excreted 14 percent less manure solids1, and their manure dissolved 33 percent faster2, supporting fast pen cleaning and less time needed to handle manure. 

With EcoCare® feeds, you never need a pit additive. Gone are the days of messy mixing and pouring, or even worse – forgetting to put the additive in the pit. It’s as simple as feeding your pigs, which you are going to do anyway!

Less Odor and More Fresh Air

In your manure pit, nitrogen, a component of protein, turns into ammonia, one of the prime culprits of manure odors. Research showed a 28.4 percent reduction3 in nitrogen excretion and a 40 percent reduction4 in ammonia emissions when pigs were fed EcoCare® feeds.

You want to be a good neighbor and a good employer. EcoCare® feeds can help reduce odors and emissions to keep employees comfortable and neighbors happy.
