Records show that global temperatures are continuing to rise. The modern pig has been bred for leaner carcasses, resulting in pigs with increased thermal sensitivity. Fast growing lean pigs generate more heat from their feed intake, resulting in a reduction in feed intakes in heat stress conditions
To combat the problems associated with heat stress, Devenish have developed Cool Finisher, which contains a unique combination of ingredients with complimentary effects.
What are the benefits to the producer?
- Significant improvement in weight gain in pigs fed Cool Finisher
- Significant increase in pigs with no lesions compared to control in gastric ulcer scoring
- Trend towards increased liveability in pigs fed Cool Finisher

Cool Finisher to be used in liquid fed finisher rations at the rate of 5kg/ton
