Anaemia develops when there is a lack of red blood cells or haemoglobin - the main component of red blood cells which binds oxygen.
The condition has a major impact on the health and welfare of piglets.
In this video, Catalin Dragoi - Swine Business Manager at Interchem visits Jonathan Marry’s farm based in Co. Louth to discuss anaemia in piglets and to highlight the importance of utilising gleptoferron as an iron supplement.
The second-generation pig farmer who was crowned the 2015 FBD Young Farmer of the Year took over the farm one decade ago and has three full-time employees.
Jonathan is satisfied with Gleptosil - a product that can be used from the first day of life and contains higher blood iron levels.
