In oestrus more quickly, bigger litters
The ability to feed sows more accurately in the farrowing pen and the improved condition of the sows when weaning brought with it another, unexpected, benefit. “When we weaned the sows on Thursday, they used to be on heat and inseminated from Monday to Thursday. Now the sows are on heat sooner and they are more synchronised. In general, all sows are inseminated on Monday and Tuesday. That’s a lot more efficient for us. Furthermore, since the condition of the sows in the farrowing pen has improved, the size of the litter has also increased from 27.5 to 30 live-born piglets/sow/year,” Inge notes enthusiastically.
Investment pays off
When asked if she would choose Nedap Farrowing Feeding again, Inge doesn’t have to think twice: “I would buy it again in a flash. It just works really well and the software is user-friendly. Accurate feeding obviously pays off because the animals are in a better condition and the mortality rate in the farrowing pen is lower.”
