Increase productivity by optimizing feeding of the lactating sows
PIG FACTS: Ad-lib Feeder

Farm productivity is all about how many piglets you can get from one sow. Therefore it is important to focus on the well-being of each sow throughout her entire production period.

The Ad-lib feeder from ACO FUNKI is a feeder for lactating sows, where the sow can choose how much she would like to consume from day one to weaning. Ad libitum feeding of lactating sows helps to improve feed intake, litter weight at weaning, and sow reproduction.

The Ad-lib feeder from ACO FUNKI allows the sow to mix feed and water in one meal, with no clogging, to take advantage of the many benefits of free-choice feeding of sows in farrowing crates.

Why is it important to have a special focus on lactating sows? How does the Ad-Lib feeder makes the lactating sows stronger?

Get the answers in the interview with Frank Andreasen, ACO FUNKI A/S, and Susanne Zwergius Teilmann, Danish Agriculture & Food Council.
