Innovation for a productive future

Skycis is an ionophore indicated for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks.

Ionophores are a specific class of antibiotics developed exclusively for food animals. The active ingredient in Skycis is narasin, which helps create a more efficient balance of bacteria in the pig’s digestive system to deliver consistent improvement in growth and performance. Narasin has been safely and effectively used in food animal production in other species for nearly 25 years.

Performance for more Full Value Pigs™

A four-trial meta-analysis found that compared to control pigs, pigs fed Skycis demonstrated:

  • 1.59% more daily gain1
  • 2.31 lbs. higher carcass weight1
  • 1.34% increased carcass daily gain1

Skycis consistently demonstrates improvement in finishing performance. Additionally, Skycis offers flexiblity to be fed throughout grow-finish, or for a minimum of 28 days during early, mid or late grow-finish.

The use of Skycis in a Full Value Pigs strategy can help make more efficient use of feed and increase weight gain, while maintaining an attractive acceptance profile.

Important Safety Information

The label contains complete use information, including cautions and warnings. Always read, understand, and follow the label and use the directions.

  • Do not allow turkeys, horses, or other equines access to narasin formulations. Ingestion of narasin by these species has been fatal. Not approved for use in breeding animals because safety and effectiveness have not been evaluated in these animals.
  • Swine being fed with Skycis (narasin) should not have access to feeds containing pleuromultilins (e.g. tiamulin) as adverse reactions may occur. If signs of toxicity occur, discontinue use.
  • No withdrawl period is required when used according to the label.
