Four main reasons for using automatic feeding in the farrowing pen
Keeping sows is a top-level sport. Day after day, you wear yourself out trying to optimise the performance of your sows. Given the small margins in pig farming, it is vital to work accurately and efficiently. The first step is to record exactly what you feed, because this can mean a difference of over $36,000 per year on a farm with 1,000 sows. Here are the four main reasons for using automatic feeding in the farrowing pen.
- How can you stimulate feed intake in the farrowing pen?
- What do sow condition and litter size have in common?
- How to wean heavier piglets
- How much can you expect to save on feed costs with automatic feeding?
