Baby Care is a milk feeding system for the distribution of fresh milk to the piglets. When the piglets have constant access to milk, it results in a higher weight at weaning.
Good genetics and especially Danish pig genetics increase the number of piglets in a litter. This is good, but not all piglets grow according to the plan and some have lower survival chances. The issue is whether they get enough feed and whether the feed is good enough.
To increase the survival rate of a litter, you need to ensure that all piglets have access to fresh milk. By offering the piglets a supplement to the sow’s own milk, you can increase the survival rate as the extra milk makes it possible for the sow to take care of more piglets.
