Automatic sorting scale for successful pig finishing.
With Big Dutchman‘s automatic sorting scale TriSortpro, finishing pigs kept in large groups – with an optimum number of 250 to 400 pigs per group – can be sorted based on their individual weight. Among other things, this helps to determine the exact number and weight of ready-to-slaughter pigs, which in turn assists with the planning of the slaughtering date. The pigs delivered to the slaughterhouse precisely match the slaughtering criteria; pigs weighing more or less than the required slaughtering weight are a thing of the past → increased overall yield and reduced feeding costs!
Another important field of use is partial finishing up to or starting at 60 kg (132 lb). These pigs‘ weight is also constantly monitored. The producer can utilize the house more efficiently. Thanks to the precise weight data, each feeding area can be supplied with an individual feed type (high- or low-energy). In addition, under- or overweight pigs can be marked with two different colours.
