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.
