Research finds potential way to replace zinc in pig feed

New study shows that fermented feed may replace zinc oxide in piglet feed by the EU 2023 phase-out date

A new research project shows that fermented feed, called EP100i and containing fermented rapeseed protein, can replace zinc in pig's feed. The study shows that pigs fed with EP100i achieve a growth rate the same as or better than pigs fed with zinc oxide.
