Product Features

AllBite™ is a molasses-based block designed to discourage vice behaviors, such as tail biting, in pigs, show pigs, and grow-finish pigs.

Its unique design and its delivery system attract pigs and encourage them to chew on the block.

Timely use of AllBite blocks can round out a sound animal welfare program.

Aggressive behavior in pigs — whether it is tail-, flank-, ear- or vulva-biting — is a frustrating management problem, leading to costly losses.  Incidents of tail-biting, in particular, are among the top behavioral problems in gilt development units (GDUs) and grow-finish pigs that can lead to economic losses due to reductions in gain, secondary infections, death or carcass condemnations.

What are the causes of tail-biting in pigs?

Studies have shown that pigs are attracted to the taste and sight of blood, and if a pig draws blood from accidentally biting a pen-mate’s tail, doing so could elicit the negative behavior in that individual pig or even spread to the entire group of pigs. However, natural behavior is only one piece of the puzzle. Numerous other factors can increase the prevalence of tail-biting, such as environmental stressors (e.g., temperature variation, lighting, ventilation, etc.), dietary issues and health challenges.

 

 

 

Why an AllBite block?

The AllBite block changes pig behavior by adding a new stimulus to the environment. AllBite allows pigs, show pigs, and grow-finish pigs to exhibit foraging behaviors and to bite and chew on the block instead of on their pen-mates. Furthermore, the AllBite formulation provides a nutritional solution that includes functional ingredients known to calm pigs by enhancing their serotonin receptors. AllBite is an economical option for those looking to positively impact the welfare of their animals.
