It is well known that sow's milk is deficient in iron. Supplementing the sow with extra iron and other trace-minerals after farrowing does not increase their content in the milk. Most newborn animals have sufficient iron to cover the suckling period however, suckling piglets do not have such a reserve of iron, making them very susceptible to anaemia. Deficiency of iron, copper and zinc will always lead to anaemia in piglets.
