The sows decide when and how much they want to eat.
EasySlider is a computer-controlled dosing device for farrowing pens mounted underneath the volume dispenser. The sow can thus choose for herself when and how much she wants to eat. She only has to actuate a pendulum inside the feed pipe and a portion is dispensed if she is entitled to receive feed. After a defined eating time, she can demand the next portion.
With the BigFarmNet control system, an individual feed curve can be set for each sow. Moreover, up to five eating times can be programmed. Meals can thus be distributed over the day, which has a positive effect on digestion and lactation.
