    Rye for Swine

Hybrid Rye for Swine

Swine Feeding is Being Revolutionized!

With new avenues of research focusing on gut health, microbiome, butyrate supplementation, and animal welfare, why not find ONE simple feed ingredient that can do it all! In Denmark, Germany, Russia, Poland, and Spain, rye has rapidly become an established component of swine diets. KWS, in partnership with farmers and feed experts, are extending this knowledge and uptake of hybrid rye across the United States and Canada. Join the #ryevolution!

Swine Feeding Advantages

  • High in essential amino acids such as lysine, methionine, and threonine
  • Naturally high in soluble fiber
  • Intrinsic levels of phytase make the phosphorus in hybrid rye highly digestable and improve the phosphorus digestibility of other grains included in the diet
  • Prebiotic and resistant starch activity
  • Positive behavioral effects via satiety inducment, especially in finishers and sows
  • High fructan content results in decreased gut ulceration and promotes hind gut health
