Feeding pigs with cactus products

China Kangtai Cactus Biotech Inc., a vertically integrated grower, developer, manufacturer and marketer of a variety of cactus-based products in China, begins marketing cactus pig feed in the forth quarter in 2009.

The announcement follows the successful launch of cactus cattle feed and fish feed in July 2008.
The new patented pig feed is expected to increase 2009 sales by approximately $330,000.
China Kangtai CEO Jinjiang Wang said, " The cactus pig feed market shows huge growth potential. Pig producers are constantly seeking ways to improve the health and productivity of their livestock. Our cactus products are proven to enhance pork production."
Health feed
Based on scientific studies of animal nutrition and immunology, cactus-derived pig feed provides nutrition, boosts immune systems and prevents sepsis and inflammatory illnesses.
Studies have shown that Kangtai's cactus feed substantially increases productivity, quality and health of pig herds thereby improving the quality of pork.
China Kangtai was awarded patents from China's State Intellectual Property Office in 2008.
