Furst-McNess has spent the last five years developing, improving, and researching an all-natural complete feeding program that includes several technologies for Sows (Nature’s Fuel™), Nursery Pigs (Wean Fuel™) and Finishing Pigs (Lean Fuel™) that will support the long-term sustainability of the North American swine industry. As the demand for antibiotic-free, animal protein-free, and ractopamine-free pork continues to increase at an exceptional rate, a cost-effective, all-natural alternative to maintain the performance of finishing pigs is needed. Furst-McNess has developed Lean Fuel™, a Patent Pending Technology through an extensive research program that included research conducted in the field, and as formal research. Lean Fuel™ is used as a tool to maintain feed consumption and support essential nutrient intake to maintain performance and health in pigs. Research has shown that fat quality (measured by Iodine Value), both in belly and jowl, can be maintained to support packer and consumer demands. As our industry moves away from antibiotics, and an increasing pressure is placed on the use of ractopamine, alternatives are needed to optimize feed and essential nutrient intake of pigs to support performance, and allow the utilization of highly cost-effective by-product feeding ingredients without loss of performance.
