Introducing: Piglait

A Unique Piglet Milk Concept

We are proud to introduce Piglait, a brand-new nutritional concept for piglets. Piglait is an exciting new concept that could prove to be a breakthrough for pig farmers who choose to adopt it.

Piglait translates as ‘milk for piglets’, but it’s so much more than just milk. It is your partner in the farrowing unit, offering practical management advice, including the first liquid feed with a dedicated feeding system.

Nutritional knowledge

R&D

Growth through research

Nukamel has been putting science into products for nearly 70 years. Through our scientific research, we can provide feed mills and farmers with dairy-based nutritional solutions and services that meet the unique needs of young animals.

Optimising animal nutrition at an early stage truly has a lifelong impact. As the genetics of animals advance through development, so do their nutritional needs. While our products help the animals to achieve their full genetical potential, they also enable farmers to improve the efficiency of their production and reduce the environmental impact.

Focus on nutritional value

Milk and dairy products are naturally rich sources of a wide range of essential nutrients, growth factors and bioactive components that all young animals need.

As a dairy specialist, Nukamel selects only top-quality sources. This selection is made based on our profound scientific understanding of the entire dairy production process.

We know that heat treatment of milk components lowers their nutritional value and can destroy their health benefits. We are committed to using only fresh, high-quality, low heat-treated ingredients that are rich in bioactive components.
