The past few years some exciting commercial results were obtained in sows when limestone was replaced with Acid Buf at 0.5% inclusion into gestation and lactation diets. Results of the commercial evaluations are presented below. This makes us look more closely at limestone in terms of origin, particle size and what it does during digestion in sows at a low pH of 2 – and finally, when replacing limestone with a more bioavailable, constant particle size source of calcium and added magnesium, the potential positive effect it can have on reproduction in sows.
These results are clear indications that, on a physiological level, all calcium’s are not created equal. Please contact us for more information, we have exciting data to share with you that would be of keen interest.
