Identifying the most effective improvements for our customers.

The nursery program is a United Animal Health program that, like everything we do, is the product of extensive customer-focused research. The result is a linked nursery nutrition program that allows pigs to transition through our series of products easily and efficiently. Customers on our nursery program receive regular visits from our expert researchers, who serve as implementation consultants to help get the optimal results out of the program.

Our nursery nutrition products are constantly being tested and improved. Our product formulas are updated every 15 months using 60 plus trials annually to do so. Nursery pig research consists of trials evaluating optimal nutritional concepts and management strategies, and identifying the most effective nursery ingredients or products.

We have multiple research farms, which include discovery facilities for identifying novel ingredients and strategies for the nursery nutrition program, as well as nursery and wean-to-finish facilities that test the nursery program as a whole in commercial-type settings. All of this research is focused on product improvements that will translate into increased profitability for our customers.

This year’s annual update introduces some new products with new names, in addition to improving our existing products to better serve our customers and enhance their bottom lines.

United Animal Health Swine Nursery Products are formulated to promote early intake and growth, while providing research-backed novel and proprietary nutritional blends of dairy and protein products, prebiotics, probiotics, botanicals, and easily-digestible carbohydrate ingredients to maximize gut health and support natural defenses.
