The feeding system of pigs is one of the most important factors to consider in feedlot production. Adequate and balanced feeding is essential to ensure optimal growth and good health of the animals.
Pigs need a diet that contains the nutrients necessary for growth and development, including protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. It is important that the feed is balanced and formulated to meet the specific nutritional needs of pigs at each stage of growth.
Good nutrition can also help to improve health and reduce the risk of diseases and health problems in pigs.
It is also important to consider the amount of feed provided to the pigs. Giving the right amount of feed can maximise growth and production efficiency.
In addition to the choice of feed, it is important to consider other factors that can influence the efficiency of pig production in feedlots.
These factors include water quality, farm environment, proper animal management and digitisation and automation of feeding.
At Aviporc we are experts in the assembly and automation of feedlot feeding. These automatic feeders consist of the following material, which you can find in our livestock shop:
Silo cone and scraper
Stainless steel box: It can be single, double or even triple-ended and with diameters varying from 50-125
PVC pipes and spiral: Viable diameters of 50-125
Reed probe: Two wire mechanical limit switch which is installed at the last discharge point (hopper), when actuated it stops the feed conveyor motor.
Membrane probe: Used as a second emergency actuator: stops the system to prevent possible malfunctions if the reed probe fails.
Motor and motor guard: Can be single-phase or three-phase and from 1-2CV
Other spare parts and parts of the automatic: Control unit, clamping plates, initiations and fasteners for the hopper downstream, etc.
In conclusion, feed is a fundamental factor in feedlot pig production. A balanced, high quality diet can improve the growth and health of pigs, which in turn can maximise production efficiency and profitability for farmers.
The right choice of feed, as well as consideration of other important factors, can help farmers achieve the best results in feedlot pig production.
