Premium Piglet feed when necessary, regular feed when possible
How to achieve healthy piglets which grow well
As a farmer, you not only want to rear healthy piglets which grow well but you also strive for the highest possible return on investment. Two factors play a major role in this: a premium-quality feed and optimal management in the first weeks of the piglet’s life. Afterwards, the strong piglets can switch to a conventional compound feed.
What are your benefits when using Romelko
High-quality premium feeds ensure a healthy growth of your piglet. While a careful transition to conventional, cheaper compound feed increases your return on investment. This is why we say premium when necessary, regular feed when possible!

The importance of early feed intake
Each piglet goes through the same growth process, but does so at its own pace and in its own way. This depends on factors such as genetics, environment and management. In the first weeks of the piglet’s life, its health is fragile, its digestive system is immature and it needs gradual exposure to different raw materials. This gradual exposure will facilitate the transition to a different diet, which helps reduce problems around weaning. Therefore, it is essential to provide supplementary feeds alongside sow milk. There are five reasons to do that.

The weaning period is critical for the piglet and it needs all the help it can get, including an optimal feeding strategy. More luxurious diets will pay off before and after weaning as they support the piglet during the weaning process. You can switch to a less luxurious feed after weaning. We not only help your piglets emerge through the weaning stage as healthy and quickly as possible, but also provide a smooth, gradual transition from luxurious feed to conventional feed, improving your efficiency.
Frequently asked questions
About weaning piglets
Piglets that consume enough milk and supplemental feed in the farrowing room exhibit fewer problems after weaning. This is because they have a gradual and higher feed intake after weaning. As a result, they do not exhibit the well-known weaning dip – one of the most common causes of problems after weaning. This is why early and sufficient supplementation in the farrowing room pays off.Find out more
Healthy, well-growing piglets are profitable during the rearing period and achieve good results during the fattening phase. These piglets will be easier to sell and might warrant a higher selling price. This is important because piglet selling prices determine the differences in feed profit between sow farms.Find out more

The number of live-born piglets per sow is increasing every year. There are more than 14 live-born piglets per litter on average, and as many as 15 for farms ranked among the top 20% in the Netherlands. With this many live-born piglets, it can be a challenge to rear them all up to weaning. Supplying extra milk in the farrowing room, in cups or by hand can help the sow wean more piglets. Motherless rearing can also help increase the number of piglets weaned. Find out more here:FInd out more
