For many years, pig farmers have used high doses of zinc oxide in weaning feed. As of July 2022, this is not allowed anymore. NovaWean® is our recommendation for a feed supplement for weaning pigs which will ease the transition from sow milk to weaner feed and starter feed. NovaWean® consists of functional fibres and selected phytogenic components from rosemary, grape, fenugreek seeds, olives and quillaja.
NovaWean® is now a registered trademark in the EU.

The use of NovaWean™ with its functional gut health effect can help prepare the gut for the digestion and fermentation of the weaning feed diet and hereby reduce problems with post weaning gut disorders.
To prepare piglets for weaning, it is important to stimulate the intake of solid feed before weaning and to encourage a higher percentage of piglets to eat, as this is the key to manage a good weaning process.
Nutritional interventions before and after weaning can modulate gut development and thereby reduce the risk of gut disorders. In addition, it is important to supply a sufficient and correct amount of nutrients.
A good diet is the key to right weaning.
