When it comes to growing the pork chain, experience the Intact Impact with IMPROVEST®. It works like an immunization, using the pig's immune system to naturally and temporarily reduce odor-causing compounds. You get the full benefits of intact males' growth and feed efficiency, without the downside, as well as more pork and more profit.1 All thanks to the Intact Impact.
As male pigs mature, their bodies naturally produce substances that can cause an off-odor to be released when the pork is cooked. While the odor creates no safety issue, nearly 50% of consumers2, especially women, are sensitive to these unpleasant smells. These odors need to be controlled to ensure a high quality eating experience. Traditionally, farmers have physically castrated male pigs to control these off-odors.
Pregnant women should not administer IMPROVEST®. Women of childbearing age should exercise extreme caution when administering this product. Exercise special care to prevent accidental self-injection because of negative effects on reproductive physiology in both men and women. However, there is no risk associated with consuming pork from animals administered this product. IMPROVEST® should not be used in female pigs, barrows, or male pigs intended for breeding.
