Recent trials confirm that the introduction of a versatile NSP (Non-Starch Polysaccharides) enzyme in pig diets, improves performance and homogeneity of animals�from weaning to slaughter. This has a positive impact on health management by a reduction of re-allotting and increased clean downtime.

For over 35 years, and in more than 50 countries, Tapco has been solving the problem of bent & torn steel buckets. ® STYLE CC-HD (HEAVY DUTY) Polyethylene Elevator Bucket Urethane • Nylon T apco nonmetallic buckets have the ability to absorb impact in the elevator leg and “give” or “yield” to bypass an obstruction. They then return to their original shape and keep on working for you. Tapco buckets weigh less than their pressed steel counterparts, lack sharp edges and therefore are far safer and easier to handle when fitting an elevator. With 900,000 buckets in 93 sizes stocked throughout the world, Tapco has what you want, when you need it! Tapco also maintains over 15 million elevator bolts in imperial and metric threads in six styles.
