Reduce negative impact of heat stress in sows • Pigs do not sweat • Pigs have small lungs • Thick fat layer When exposed to heat stress: • Respiration rate increases • Loss of appetite • Increased body temperature

• Reduce sow mortality • Increase piglet weaning weight • Improve the animals general immune status

NoxiFerm provides the sow with • Antioxidants • Energy (increases production of SCFA)

If heat stress continuous: • Pigs drink excessive amounts of water (loss of electrolytes) • Accumulate acids (loss of acid/base balance) • Intestinal defence function is damaged • Increased passage of pathogens or even death

NoxiFermTM contains: • Sodium gluconate as energy source • Unique mixture of natural flavoring compounds with high antioxidative activity


Decrease in sow mortality
