With a pneumatic wheel dispenser which measures feed, each portion is delivered in small doses (100 to 200g) according to the animal appetite and its ingestion rythm. The TIT System (Trough Inspection Technology) in the bottom of the trough enables the distribution of the feed each time it detects an empty trough.
The sows eat at their own pace and appetite according to their feeding curve – with no wasted feed. Each dose is delivered with a water dose. Between meals, water distribution curves can be preset.
The daily water portion is also delivered in small quantities. Thus, the sow always has fresh water in the trough. These elements improves the sow consumption and lactation.
But, the Materneo system doesn’t stop here and can go even further. It is able to control the silos supply and to detect the farrowing with a special camera. In a nutshell, Materneo is an utter concept for farrowing management.
