Feed grade ferrous sulfate monohydrate is a common additive to complement iron trace nutrition elements in feedings. Iron, is one of the major components of hemoglobin. If lack of iron, it can cause piglets nutritional anemia.
Why would piglets lack of ferrous?
Piglets should have a lot of iron in the body, as the piglets grow, the ferrous is quickly consumed. Especially piglets born in late summer or early autumn, if not supplied ferrous 10 days after birth, different degree of anemia symptoms will appear. Moreover, the content of ferrous in the sow milk is only 0.003% which can't satisfy the need of piglets growth. Therefore, the piglets should be fed ferrous as early as possible, generally 5 days after birth. Note that it’s better to supple copper elements at the same time because ferrous can only be absorbed when the copper exist.
