Iron deficiency anemia has been a problem with pigs raised in confinement for over five decades. During that period effective treatments have been developed, but these still involve a considerable outlay of labor on the part of the swine producer. The need for an effective and easily administrable hematinic still exists. The possible advantage of the treatment tested here are: 1. The treatment may be administered to either sow or baby pigs in drinking water or feed. Pigs born to sows whose diet was supplemented may have increased iron stores. 3. The iron concentration of milk in sows whose diet was supplemented may be increased. 4. The treatment would decrease the need for handling the baby pigs in the early neonatal period.
