Young animals deserve the best

Every young animal goes through the same growth process but does so at its own pace and in its own way. This depends on factors like genetics, environment, management, etc. During the first week of life, the health of young animals is very fragile.

The right nutrition at the right time

De Heus develops specialties to support animals through high intensity phases in the production cycle. For example, specialty products that keep your dairy cows healthy through their dry period or that enhance fertility and lactation of sows. The combination of our extensive nutritional knowledge combined with our knowledge about what is common practice enables us to pinpoint our specialties with high accuracy to deliver the exact nutrients at the right time.

More about Animal Nutrition

Stimulating palatability for young animals

In our specialties for young animals, we ensure that proteins are very digestible and formulated to stimulate palatability for young animals.

Our formulation and production technologies are designed to create a product with the right texture to enhance uptake by the animal and promote optimum digestion of all the vital nutrients. By observing young animals on our own farms and on those of our customers, we have been able to create nutritional formulas and solutions that will ensure an optimal start on all types of farms.
