Summary of Commercial Animal Production Studies by Grazix Animal Health, Inc.

The studies performed by Grazix Animal Health, Inc. on commercial and university farms provide valuable insights into enhancing intestinal health in livestock, leading to increased growth rates, improved feed efficiency, and reduced mortality. Here is a summary of their key findings:

Key Study Findings

Piglet Stress Reduction Post-Weaning

Study Site: Chen-Leu Yuan Quality Breed Pig Farm, Taiwan

Objective: Assess weight gain in piglets post-weaning when supplemented with Grazix.

Method: Piglets were divided into two groups; one received Grazix solution, the other did not. Both groups were fed milk replacer only.

Results: Piglets receiving Grazix showed an 18% higher net weight gain compared to the control group, indicating Grazix’s effectiveness in reducing stress and enhancing growth during weaning.

Reduction in Weaning Pig Mortality

Study Site: Local Farm, IPOH Malaysia

Objective: Compare mortality rates in piglets given Grazix versus traditional antibiotic treatments.

Method: Piglets were administered Grazix orally from birth until weaning. A control group received standard antibiotic treatments.

Results: Mortality rates were reduced by 50% in piglets receiving Grazix, with significant improvements in overall health and reduction in diarrhea severity.

Improved Growth Performance in Weaned Pigs

Study Site: Csanyi Farm, Hungary

Objective: Measure growth performance with daily Grazix supplementation.

Method: Piglets were divided into two groups; one received Grazix solution, the other did not. All piglets were provided with a standard diet.

Results: Pigs given Grazix had a 9.6% increase in average daily weight gain over a 35-day period, demonstrating enhanced growth performance and feed efficiency.

E. coli Challenge in Post-Weaning Piglets

Study Site: University of Milan, Italy

Objective: Evaluate the effects of Grazix on piglets challenged with E. coli.

Method: Piglets were divided into groups, with some receiving Grazix in their water and others not. The piglets were then challenged with E. coli.

Results: Grazix-supplemented piglets had better growth rates, lower fecal scores, and reduced pathogenic bacteria in the intestines, indicating improved resilience against infections.

PRRS Virus Mortality Reduction

Study Site: Deer Park Farm, SD, USA

Objective: Assess mortality rates in PRRS-infected pigs with Grazix supplementation.

Method: Pigs were divided into groups, with one group receiving Grazix solution daily and the other not. Both groups were fed the same standard diet.

Results: Mortality rates were halved, and pigs reached market weight 10 days earlier, showing Grazix’s potential in managing viral infections and promoting faster growth.

Resolution of Neonatal Scour

Study Site: Multiple Farms in the USA and the Netherlands

Objective: Evaluate the effectiveness of Grazix in resolving neonatal scour.

Method: Grazix was administered to piglets presenting with diarrhea. Results were compared to historical data.

Results: Grazix significantly improved scour recovery rates, with up to 97% overall success in neonatal piglets, demonstrating its efficacy in managing digestive health issues from a young age.

Enhanced Health in High-Health Herds

Study Site: New Fashion Pork Research Nursery, IA, USA

Objective: Assess Grazix’s impact on high-health herds post-weaning.

Method: Pigs were divided into control and test groups, with the latter receiving Grazix through their water supply.

Results: Grazix effectively reduced digestive distress, showing similar growth performance to traditional treatments but with fewer health complications.


These findings from Grazix’s extensive research provide valuable evidence of the benefits of phytogenic supplements in improving animal health and productivity. The positive outcomes across various studies highlight the potential of natural solutions to enhance intestinal health, promote growth, and reduce mortality rates in livestock.
