Assist™ is a combination of yeast culture product and copper chloride designed to be used in grow-finish pigs.
Assist is a gut environment enhancing product that has been shown to help pigs manage stress caused by specific disease challenges and as a tool to reduce mortality associated with Hemorrhagic Bowel Syndrome (HBS). Copper chloride is included in Assist because it is a stable form of copper that has been shown to incrase weight gain in pigs when fed through the growing and finishing phases.
