The feeding principle considers the natural manipulation behaviour, as the pigs have to activate the feeder to get feed. Consequently, the trough is cleaned and free of feed residues, which helps to keep a high level of hygiene. The TUBE-O-MAT NX hopper is shaped with almost vertical sides to prevent bridging. The trough has double drinking bowls allowing the pigs to choose water or dry feed. Taking water and feed at the same time is also reducing stress in the group. You can measure the effect: excellent daily gain from wean to finish.
