Automated precision feeding for optimal performance
Maximize sow productivity
Feed lactating sows strategically
With Nedap Automated Farrowing Feeding, you can adjust each sow’s feed ration based on her condition, the number of piglets in each litter and her lactation stage. This precision brings economic value to your bottom line.
We developed our automatic farrowing feeding system so you can set up feeding strategies to optimize intake, helping sows stay in good condition throughout the lactation period and produce robust piglets.
The farrowing feeding unit can be installed in farrowing pens or gestation crates, attached to any feeder with a doser. With the Nedap computerized program, facility managers can enter individual feeding strategies to optimize intake. The system dispenses feed allotments in small increments throughout the day. Multiple servings can help improve feed intake, maintain condition and support milk production.
Precision in breeding stalls
The compact feeder used in Nedap Farrowing Feeding also can be used in the breeding stall. Precise rations in the breeding stalls support sows in their recovery after lactation. This supports fewer returns and more piglets per litter.
