Avoid poisoning from fresh grain

Poisoning from fresh grain of new harvest is a well-known disease that has plagued Danish pig production for years, but its causes and mechanisms are still not fully understood.

Symptoms among sows and slaughter pigs include diarrhoea, poor appetite, and high fever. To diagnose the disease, samples must be taken and analysed for peroxide value, which typically ranges between 5-10 mEq/kg fat.

Use vitamin E as an antioxidant

An effective method to avoid poisoning from fresh grain is to add vitamin E to newly harvested grains to be used in pig feed.

Vitamin E functions as an important biological antioxidant because vitamin E protects against free radical’s oxidative damages.
