The Selfifeeder concept is fully in line with European standards for sow welfare.

Asserva, with the Selfifeeder, provides an alternative and innovative solution to manage the gestating sows feeding in group. Unlike ESF stations, the Selfifeeder reduces waiting times, lowers stress and makes the sows easier to manage, static batch by static batch. 

With a lower cost and an easier mechanical system, the Selfifeeder concept has 3 to 4 times more feeders than an ESF station. The sow that is allowed to access to feeding enters one of the feeders and is directly isolated from the rest of the animals by an automatic back gate. 

A RFID antenna recognizes the animal electronic chip and distribute the feed, according to the feeding plan. 

The next measure will follow as soon as the level sensors will detect that the trough is empty, and so on, until the complete ingestion of the daily allowance. Distribution is adapted for each sow without any feed stolen or wasted.
