Iron Pills

The Iron pills are a vitamin enriched iron supplement designed specifically for piglets in order to meet their needs of this essential nutrient.

The natural diet of piglets, primarily consisting of the sow’s milk, does not fully cover their need of iron. Therefore, it is crucial that you provide them with additional iron, as this mineral plays a central role in the formation of haemoglobin in the red blood cells. An iron deficiency can lead to anemia, lower growth, as well as an increased mortality rate among the piglets.

The product’s benefits

In addition to the iron, this product also contains vitamin C, which strengthens the mucous membranes and increases the uptake of iron. Therefore, this combination of nutrients ensures effective fulfilment of the nutritional needs of the piglets.

One of the advantages of using iron pills is that it allows piglets to regulate their own iron intake based on their individual needs, while you avoid the risk of injuries from injection and subsequent complications such as arthritis.

The pills are easily spread on the floor in a clean and dry area where the sow cannot reach them. This ensures a safe and effective method of providing iron to the piglets.


The iron pills are available in bags with 20 kg.
