Description of FerroForte
Most newborn piglets rapidly become iron deficient, leading to anemia, failure to thrive, and potentially elevated mortality levels, with significant negative economic implications for the producer.
For many years now, injectable iron has proven a relatively economical and effective approach to correcting iron deficiency and anemia in piglets.
