Finding efficiency with automated sorting scale technology
3. Produce more meat per foot of floor space
Housing facilities must be used efficiently to get the most return from this asset. Automated sorting scale technology can help boost barn efficiency by helping you produce more meat per foot (meter) – helping you achieve up to 99% effective use of available floor space.
4. Feed appropriate diets to lower feed cost
It’s important to make the most of your feed investment and not over- or under-feed pigs. Automated sorting systems weigh each pig and direct it to one of two feeding areas with the diet best suited to its actual weight.
5. Gain real-time, 24/7 data
Access to continually collected, accurate activity, weight, growth and sorting data means you can make more informed, timely individual pig and group management decisions.
“It’s time to take control of your finishing program,” says Kleve. “You can quit feeding and marketing to averages. Instead, invest in automation to increase the uniformity of your finishing groups and get them to market on time, every time.”
