Well-managed Feed Boosts Sustainable Farming
Pig producers around the world face the same challenge: how to reduce waste and improve the sustainability of their production. The barn feeding system is often a good place to start.
Representing the pig farmer’s biggest expense, feed accounts for around 50% of the costs on sow farms and up to 80% on farms that focus on raising finishers. So, any opportunity to cut feed waste through better feeding control is also an opportunity to improve profits.
One of Europe’s leading developers and suppliers of barn equipment, Danish ACO FUNKI has the efficient feeding systems to make that happen.
ADVANCED PHASE FEEDING SYSTEMS REDUCE FEED WASTE AND GIVE COMPLETE FEED TRACEABILITY AND STORAGE CONTROL
Phase feeding ensures lower feed consumption
ACO FUNKI’s advanced phase feeding systems are designed to ensure all pigs receive the right feed mixes for their age and, thanks to sensor control, that they get just enough feed to meet their needs. So very little feed is left over in the trough.
In this way, farmers reduce feed waste and as an extra benefit also obtain complete feed traceability and storage control.
From waste to profits
Residual-free liquid feeding also ensures no remnants are left in the feed pipes after feeding. So, the feed distributed to the pigs is always completely fresh, reducing bacteria and infections in the barn and cutting medicine consumption by 50%.
