From Pig Mgt
New EU regulation is stating that as from 1 January 2013 all sows from four days after natural or artificial insemination must be housed in groups up to one week before the expected farrowing time. The most ideal solution is a feeding station with possibilities for small static groups to large dynamic groups. Insentec BV, as developer and producer of the Compufeeder has already many years of experience with this form of innovative group housing systems for the modern pig breeding industry.
Efficient management is crucial for the continuity and growth of your business. Especially within the modern pig breeding industry. With the use of the compufeeder system in combination with our renewed management software package 'P.P.P.' (Prima Pork Professional) passes you far ahead on all developments within this market. This system is fully developed in collaboration with the practice and therefore becomes a very efficient and user-friendly sow feeding system, which also makes it very easy to respond to changes in your farm size.
INDIVIDUEL FEED DISPENSING
The Compufeeder is based on individual feed provision, providing each animal the proper nutrition and in the correct quantity. This individual treatment assures a good condition and health of your animals and provides a great saving on your feed costs and labor. Up to two feed types + medication can be provided individually.
To prevent unnecessary entrance in to the feeding station
WALK ALONG PROTECTION
The Compufeeder is equipped with a patented walk along protection system, which prevents a second sow to enter the feeding station . This prevents a lot of stress within the Group and improves animal welfare.
AUTOMATIC TROUGH VALVE
The trough valve closes automatically after the sow has reached her maximum feed supply. This keeps a sow no longer in the feeding station than necessary.
By means of the settings that you enter in your management system, animals can be separated out of the group automatically. The time-consuming fetching of sows is a thing of the past. Alternatively a color marker can be applied.
An accurate and on time determination of a sow in heat, is an important tool that determines the efficiency of production to a large extent. When a sow in heat is detected, the software automatically gives an attention. The animal can optionally be separated or marked with a color by her next visit to the Compufeeder system.
