• Deaths attributed to common infections resistant to antimicrobials will be the biggest killer in both humans and animals worldwide by 2050 (The Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, 2016).
  • The ban on therapeutic levels of zinc oxide in piglet diets, to control post-weaning scours, could result in losses of up to €1,080 million/year for the EU pig industry.
  • This drives a need to Review, Reduce and Replace antibiotics Responsibly to help manage gut health and support healthier livestock through the use of natural products.
    Orego-Stim and Anpario’s ABE are effective in managing sow gut health and improving progeny performance.

  • Weaning is one of the most stressful times in the commercial pig’s life. For piglets, diarrhoea (scour) is a widespread problem, leading to loss of condition, performance, and even death.
  • Ensuring a healthy gut microbiota and a stable, diverse population of bacteria will improve animal health and performance (Miniello et al., 2017), this is defined as Eubiosis.


  • Anpario’s Acid Based Eubiotics are designed to help balance the microbiota, feed beneficial bacteria and reduce proliferation of pathogenic bacteria within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT).
  • Anpario’s ABE comprise of a blend of organic acids and plant extracts on a unique mineral carrier system to ensure maximum efficacy throughout the GIT and result in low inclusion levels.
  • Encouraging the development of a stable and diverse microbiota in turn helps to improve animal performance and health naturally through the increased indigenous production of butyric acid in the lower GIT.
  • Anpario’s ABE have also been shown to be effective in supporting swine health and performance without zinc oxide or antibiotics (Anpario own data).


  • Feeding Orego-Stim in the lactation diet helps to improve sow voluntary intakes which leads to piglet pre weaning growth rate benefits and increased weaning-weights (Tan et al., 2015).
  • Orego-Stim also helps to alleviate the stress response at farrowing and is an immune modulator which can help reduce energy demands and improve feed conversion efficiency.


  • Ensuring the sow is in optimal health with a low gut pathogen load prior to farrowing helps to produce healthy and robust piglets at weaning.
  • This also reduces the likelihood of mastitis and enteric issues through reduced pathogen load on the animal and environment.
