Correcting the results of reproduction biology and pig-breeding
In the previous years, ADEXGO Ltd. has developed an omega-3 fat-product with special fatty-acid content, with the name “REPRO-GO-M”, which can be successfully used for improving reproduction-biological and fertilization results of monogastric animals (for instance: breeding-sow, broiler and laying hen stocks. The product also has special effect on the feeding of young animals (e.g.: pig). It is known that as a consequence of the corn-soya based feeding, the monogastric animals eat feed, of which fatty-acid rate is n-6:n-3 broader than the optimal; thus their catering is incomplete regarding the physiologically important n-3 fatty-acids (pl. C18:3, C20:5 and C22:6).
For the basic body of REPRO-GO-M we use high EPA (C20:5, n-3) and DHA (C22:6, n-3) content fish-oil, flax-seed (linseed) rich in α-linolenic-acid (C18:3, n-3), furthermore natural anti-oxidants (tocopherols).
ADVANTAGES OF REPRO-GO-M PRODUCTS
- It has a positive effect on the functioning of the ovary.
- The rate of occurrence regarding embryo-mortification decreases.
- The litter-number improves.
- The EPA (C20:5) and DHA-content (C22:6) of sow-milk increases, which has a favourable effect on the development of pigs.
- It has a positive effect on the rate of the normal-built spermatozoa and motilities.
- It supports the development of the nervous system, the development of the proper eyesight, the construction of the genitalia and it also strengthens the capability of resistance.
- Reduction of mortality % around the wearing period.
- Moderation of inflamed procedures, support of resistance against infectious illnesses.

POLYUNSATURATED FATTY-ACIDS (PUFA)
In the nature the more frequently occurring polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA=polyunsaturated fatty acids) have 2-6 double bonds (Gurr and Harrwood, 1991).
- n-3 fatty acids (omega-3)
The most important representatives of this group are: α-linolenic acid (ALA, C18:3), and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, C20:5) generated during its metabolism, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, C22:6). ALA-sources are: e.g.: rape-, soya-, flax-seed, and their oil-extract; while the most important EPA- and DHA-source is fish-oil.
- n-6 fatty acids (omega-6)
Among the fatty acids belonging to the group, the most frequently and in the biggest quantity the linoleic acid (C18:2, LA) and the arachidon acid (C20:4) generating from it can be found in the food and in the feed. In the animal feeding the most significant LA-source is sunflower oil; and the grain seeds (e.g.: corn). Considering the fact that the animal organism cannot make a double bond on the 3rd or on the 6th positioned carbon atom, therefore both the linoleic acid and the linolenic acid are considered essential fatty acids, which the animal organism must obtain with the feed.
