Whitepaper: Weight Monitoring

How automated weight monitoring pays off

“Guess the weight”: a game often played at trade fairs and markets. How often have you hit the nail on the head and guessed the correct weight? In practice, when it comes to assessing the weight of sows, a visual assessment can be wrong 50% of the time, with major consequences for the technical and financial results of your farm. So, stop guessing and let the technology do the work. This is what you get out of it.

  • Four ways in which automated weight monitoring pays off
  • What is the impact on feed efficiency and costs?
  • How do you save time and labour?
  • What does weight monitoring mean for your breeding gilts?
  • How do you wean more and heavier piglets?
