raising pigs is raising intestines

The intestine is not only the main place for animals to digest food and absorb nutrients, but also the largest immune organ in the body. Seventy percent of the immune factors in pigs are produced in the gut, and all nutrients are delivered to the body by the gut. So, let me tell you how to keep your gut healthy?
Factors Affecting Intestinal Health
1. Nutritional insufficiency in the diet:
①The pig feed is nutritionally inadequate, unbalanced, and of poor quality, resulting in a lack of nutrients in the body, which directly affects the function of the intestinal mucosal immune system and the health of the gastrointestinal tract; ②In the feed Lack of various vitamins and trace elements, etc., can cause gastrointestinal dysfunction, which in turn affects the health of the entire pig body; ③ lack of VB, pigs show anorexia, indigestion, etc.; iron deficiency can also lead to nutritional anemia, appetite and appetite in piglets Decreased, periodic diarrhea and constipation. It can be seen that the occurrence of nutritional deficiencies and many nutritional metabolic diseases will cause harm to the health of the gastrointestinal tract of pigs.
Suggestion: Before catching piglets, it is necessary to thoroughly clean the pen, especially some dead corners of hygiene, such as feed troughs and manure leakage boards.
2. Abuse of antibiotics:
When using antibiotics to kill harmful bacteria, it will also kill beneficial bacteria, resulting in an imbalance of intestinal flora, nutrient absorption can not keep up, immune factors are reduced, and some intestinal diseases will appear.
3.Mycotoxin  poisoning:
due to improper management, pigs may be poisoned by excessive intake of mycotoxins. After the poisoning, the immune system of the intestinal mucosa of pigs and the digestion and absorption function of the intestinal tract are damaged, which harms the health of the pig's intestinal tract.
How to maintain intestinal health
1. Feeding high-quality feed:
① Ensure that there are enough protein, amino acids, trace elements and various essential vitamins; ② Must be nutritionally complete and scientifically matched to ensure the nutritional needs of pigs at different growth stages .
2. The hazards of feeding moldy and spoiled feed:
It is easy to cause various toxins and chemical drug poisoning, damage the function of the intestinal mucosal immune system, destroy the function of the gastrointestinal tract, cause diarrhea, gastroenteritis, and death in severe poisoning.
Suggestion: Only by feeding safe, green and nutritious environmentally friendly feeds can the health and production performance of pigs be guaranteed. If the feed quality is poor and the body is malnourished, it will threaten the intestinal immune barrier, reduce the function of the mucosal immune system, and easily induce various infections; 3. The main causes of dysbacteriosis:
① Widespread use of antibiotics;
② If the antibacterial spectrum is too broad, the imbalance of the flora will cause the excessive reproduction of harmful bacteria and inhibit the growth of beneficial bacteria, which will bring many problems such as growth and development, production performance and disease occurrence to pigs.
Suggestion: Adding enteral nutrition (intestinal source) to the feed can promote gastrointestinal motility, supplement beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, repair damaged gastrointestinal mucosa, and improve the utilization rate of feed and the absorption rate of nutrients for pigs : Promote growth, advance slaughter, enhance non-specific immunity, improve disease resistance, and reduce the discharge of various harmful gases, thereby improving the breeding ecological environment and maintaining the health of the gastrointestinal tract.
Summary: The health of the gastrointestinal tract of pigs can not only provide a variety of nutrients for the normal physiological function, growth, development and reproduction of the animal body, but also provide strong immune protection. In pig production, great attention must be paid, and the balance of the micro-ecological environment in the gastrointestinal tract of pigs should not be destroyed at will.
