The Tonisity Total Programme

The Tonisity Total Programme (TTP) was developed to improve the gut health performance of pigs from day 2, right through to finish. Where most products feed the pig, this programme is designed to feed the gut of piglets at different stages of their production lifecycle; in the farrowing house, at weaning, and for weaned or fattening pigs.

Farrowing Using Px

To make up the 3% solution, it’s as simple as mixing 310g (2 level 155g scoops) of Tonisity Px with 10 litres of fresh, potable drinking water.

Starting 24-48 hours after birth and for the next 7 days, give 500 mL (1 pint) of liquid Tonisity Px solution per litter per day in a clean pan or trough. Ensure that piglets have received sufficient colostrum and have access to fresh water. Prepare fresh liquid Tonisity Px solution and clean the pans or troughs daily.

Caution! Make sure to prepare fresh Tonisity Px solution daily with fresh, potable drinking water and clean pans!

Pre-weaning / Using Px

Pour the Tonisity Px solution on top of dry feed, or prepare a gruel, for at least 3 days before weaning.

Ratio

1.5 part of Tonisity Px solution for each part of dry feed (e.g. 1.5 litre of solution for each kg of feed)

Quantity

Target a quantity of 1.5 litre of solution + 1 kg of feed per litter per day (or 120 ml of solution + 80 g of feed per piglet per day), given in 2 to 3 meals. If possible, supply the Tonisity Px solution 2 to 3 days after weaning (100 ml per piglet / day)

Post-weaning / Using PxW

Add Tonisity PxW to the water lines, for at least 3 days after weaning.

  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
