Baby Care is an automatic milk feeding system that distributes fresh milk in a farrowing unit. The system ensures that all piglets have enough milk. When the piglets have constant access to milk, it results in a higher weight at weaning. When the piglets are 1 kilo heavier at weaning, they have a faster growth after weaning and this gives a higher survival rate.
