Developed from Quality Equipment’s own research project and now sold throughout the world, the Transition Feeder, as the name suggests, helps the piglet make the transition from milk to solid feed after weaning. As pig farmers well know, weaning is a challenging process for the young pig which has to make the change from mother’s milk at 20 per cent dry matter to meal or pellets at 85 per cent dry matter. This feeder encourages increased feed intake and fast growth, resulting in fewer days to finish. It mixes feed with water in the trough, while a control panel allows little and often feeding at preset times to mimic the sow’s own feeding pattern. A warm water version of the Transition Feeder is available for young piglets when feeding milk replacer.
