What is Ferroforte?

FerroForte® is an injectable Iron Dextran 20% supplement made to prevent iron deficiency anemia in newborn piglets. Due to their rapid growth and common housing practices all piglets are very susceptible to anemia and other health conditions that come along with it.

Not only are piglets born with a smaller supply of iron than most animals, they also require a greater deal of iron due to their rapid growth. Common indoor housing practices prevent piglets from obtaining iron naturally from their environment unlike piglets born outdoors who get the iron they require from rooting in the soil. The only source of nutrients for piglets born indoors are the sows milk which is very low in iron.

This is why it is necessary for modern pig producers to supplement piglets with iron.
