Nedap Webinar : Make your farm future proof
On-demand: Webinar on smart data use on a pig farm
Another Pig Progress webinar is now available for review. A recently held webinar in cooperation with Nedap Livestock Management focused on the question how to make a pig farm future proof, with the clever use of modern technology and data management applications.
The webinar was broadcasted live on Friday, October 30, from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Three expert speakers shared their views on the increasing importance of precision agriculture and how data can improve management.
Enderink introduced Nedap’s “sensored solutions,” placing many sensors in a barn to follow individual animals, measuring what they do, what they consume and how much they weigh.
Providing right rations to lactating sows
Complementary to close monitoring during gestation is keeping a similar kind of oversight during lactation. As these circumstances are different, solutions need to be different too. Jose Simeone, sales and account manager Latin America at Nedap explained about solutions that can be applied in this phase of the cycle.
Simeone said that in modern sow production, sows should be provided rations according to their individual needs and they should be supplied with small amounts, daily and nightly. To that end, he discussed Nedap automated feeding solution, meeting those requirements, and capable of identifying sows with low feed intake.
