- Model FaroTek - Electronic Farrowing Sow Feeder



Enable your farrowed sows to eat multiple times during the day with the new FaroTek™ Farrowing Sow Feeding System. This MANNEBECK® sow feeding system provides sows with individualized care in group housing:

  • Track sows – gestation through farrowing.
  • Use individualized feed curves.
  • Maintain or improve body condition.
  • Optimize piglet weaning weights. 

FaroTek™ Farrowing Sow Feeder

  • Sows are fed according to the individual feed curve programmed into the feeder.
  • Quickly start all sows with the same feed curve and then easily adapt the curve to the individual needs of the sow on that feeder.
  • Feeding sows multiple times per day:
    • Helps to increase the sow’s feed intake to increase milk production and reduce body weight loss.
    • Keeps the sow in better condition while increasing milk production and producing more uniform piglets.
  • To activate the FAROTEK Feeder to dispense feed, the sow simply touches her nose to a sensor located at the top of the feed trough.
  • Each room with FAROTEK Feeders can operate independently without being networked or the feeders can be linked to a network of FAROTEK Feeders in multiple farrowing rooms.

TouchTek™ Control

  • The included TouchTek™ Control from Mannebeck can control up to 64 FAROTEK Feeders. Individual TOUCHTEK Controls can be networked together to oversee all the sows on the farm.
  • This unique control features a color touch-screen display and can function as a stand-alone control or be networked with other TOUCHTEK Controls for sharing sow data.
  • When TOUCHTEK Controls are linked together into a computer network, it is possible for the producer to monitor, analyze and store individual sow feeding data on a personal computer.

M-Touch™ Control

  • Mannebeck‘s optional M-Touch™ Portable Control is a lightweight, hand-held unit that offers easy in-pen sow identification and the ability for a producer to fine-tune individual sow feed curves.
  • Easy to carry and use, this control communicates with the FAROTEK Feeder for making adjustments to individual feed settings for the sow’s condition or number of piglets in the litter.
  • The M-TOUCH Control utilizes an Android operating system and links to Mannebeck‘s feeder controls through Bluetooth® wireless technology.
