Taintstop. The proven in-feed solution to combat boar taint
The animal-friendly alternative to castration
For centuries, pigs have been castrated to prevent boar taint. However, a potential ban on routine castration in European pig herds is looming with public and consumer concerns for animal welfare, supported by pressure from a number of governmental and non-governmental organisations – including from the pig industry.
WHAT IS TAINTSTOP
TAINTSTOP is the perfect nutritional alternative to piglet castration that significantly decreases the offensive odour-causing compounds in pig meat.
This award winning in-feed solution not only reduces boar taint, it is also a risk-free alternative for the farmer and is perfectly acceptable to consumers who want healthy, tasty pork. Furthermore, it guarantees animal welfare as surgical, and often painful, castration is no longer needed. And that is good news, because you can be 100% in compliance with the new upcoming European legislation.
Thanks to this innovative and cost-effective feeding solution, pig producers can increase their profitability while pigs will be able to ‘hang loose’ again ... Everybody loves TAINTSTOP. How about you?
