What is Selko-pH?

Selko-pH is a synergistic blend of free and buffered organic acids. The free acids in Selko-pH make the product paticularly effective in reducing the pH of drinking water. In addition, digestion is supported by reducing the stomach pH. The buffered acids used in Selko-pH improve the microbial balance in the gastrointestinal tract. The overall result of Selko-pH is a positive effect on pigs gut health and performance. 

How does using Selko-pH improve gut health and performance?

The health status of pig farms has a strong influence on the farm’s financial results. A healthy microbial balance is crucial for optimal feed utilisation and animal performance.

The positive effect of Selko-pH on performance is achieved in 3 steps.

Step 1: Effectively reduces water pH

Water is the most crucial nutrient for animals. The synergistic blend of free organic acids in Selko-pH effectively reduces water pH. Analyses carried out in the Selko laboratory show that application of Selko-pH reduces the pH-value of drinking water to around 3.8.

Step 2: Supports digestion

The synergistic blend of free organic acids in Selko pH reduces the pH in the pig’s stomach. This leads to improved feed digestion and maintains a stable microbiota. The pH reducing effect is particularly important for young animals, as the pH in their stomachs is relatively high.

Step 3: Improves microbial balance

Piglets are especially vulnerable at the start of the production phase, when their intestinal flora is still developing. The buffered organic acids in Selko-pH help to maintain a stable intestinal microbiota, thereby giving these young animals a good start.
