Transport / PxW Benefits

During transit, pigs are exposed to various stressors (space restrictions, travel conditions and transit time), which can affect their overall health and well-being. Tonisity PxW is currently being used to provide support and hydration during these stressful periods to ensure pigs arrive in the best possible condition.

Use Tonisity PxW WeanBetter after transport, especially in weaning pigs, to facilitate a quicker transition to normal feeding behaviours and improve their hydration.

Px Science

Add Tonisity PxW solution to the water lines

Directions for use:

  • 1
  • 1kg PxW Powder + 4L Fresh Water = PxW Solution
  • 1 part PxW Solution + 100 parts Fresh Water = PxW Solution (1:100)
  • Days 0, +1, +2 at weaning
  • 2
  • 1kg PxW Powder + 5L Fresh Water = PxW Solution
  • PxW Solution + 500L = 500L Treated Water

Transport / Using PxW

  1. Medicator Pump
  • Add 1kg of PxW powder to 4L of water to make a liquid concentrated solution in a suitable container
  • Mix well until dissolved
  • The concentrated solution of Tonisity PxW should be delivered through the water lines using an automatic dosing system, with the dilution rate set at 1 part of concentrated Tonisity PxW to 100 parts water (1:100). 10L of concentrate supplies 850-1000 weaners for a day.
  1. Water Supply System
  • Add 1 kg of PxW powder to at least 5L of water in any suitable container
  • Mix well until dissolved
  • Add that mixture to a 500L water supply. 500L of treated water will supply 400-500 weaners for a day
