The sow herd consists of 350 breeding sows (Topigs) with which we can conduct product comparisons, dose-response studies, registration and tolerance studies (in conformance with EU guidelines) and digestibility studies. Studies can be performed during any stage of the reproductive cycle: pregnancy, lactation and the period between weaning and estrus. Tests can be conducted with two to six treatments with twenty to forty sows per treatment.
