Brookside Agra has developed a fast-acting, nutrient supplement that gives weak, newborn piglets a much-needed energy boost and a chance at survival.

Given right after birth to weak, cold piglets with a birth weight below two pounds, liquid Runt-Rescue[trade] helps to reduce mortality in large litters, prevents weak piglets from starving and provides small piglets with the energy boost they need to find and secure a teat for suckling.

“We have witnessed first-hand the rejuvenating effects that our Runt-Rescue has on weak piglets that would otherwise perish as a result of their condition. Our supplement gives them a quick boost of nutrients to put them on the right track to health and vigor,” said Tim Nelson, Brookside Agra Vice President – Animal Health & Nutrition Sales. “Developing products that improve animal performance with no harmful side effects is at the forefront of Brookside Agra’s research.”

Runt-Rescue contains hyper immunized egg powder which contains egg-based antibodies derived from hens strategically vaccinated with specific antigens over time. This ingredient in Runt-Rescue helps to fend off such intestinal pathogens such as rotavirus, coronavirus, E. coli and salmonella.
