From Dry Feeding
COMBI-feeder can be used for both nursing sows and weaners, and is the most useful in the farrowing pens for loose sows, where the sow is moved while the weaners stay in the pen. The system works by means of the pendulum in the tube bottom being removed during the lactating period, so that the feed falls down directly through the tube, and the feed is dosed in a mounted feed dispenser. When the sow is moved, the weaners eat from the trough without water and with the mounted pendulum, so that the pigs should activate the pendulum to get the feed.

The weaners get water through the separate water valves. It means that the sow and the weaners use the same feeding system, which helps to reduce the costs. Furthermore you can save on washing, if the pigs stay in the farrowing pen.
