Optimize Genetic Potential
The genetic potential of each individual pig, should be maximized at minimal costs. To achieve these objectives, full insight in the growth of your pigs is required
Average daily gain pigs
The Pig Scale provides continuous insights into the growth of the pigs during the nursery and fattening round. You exactly know, at each moment of the day, the weigh, average daily gain and the weight spread of your pigs.
Water and temperature
Additional to weight, water consumption and temperature can be monitored. Enabling you to see the water consumption and temperature in relation to bodyweight.
Sorting based on pig weight
The pig scale can also be equipped with painting marker(s) to mark the pigs according to preset marking weight(s). This way pigs that are suitable for delivery will be marked accordingly, making sorting easy and accurate. This way unpleasant surprises (penalties) at the end of the round can be provided.
Reduces Biosecurity risks
No human intervention is needed to safely weight the livestock resulting in time savings and stress reduction to each individual pig making it healthier and calmer which in return avoids loss of production results due stress.
Justify Feed Costs
An accurate weight is required for nutrition requirements, medication dosing and general health monitoring of the livestock. Based on the real-time weigh data the diet can be matched to the pigs requirements. Enabling you to maximize the growth potential and justifying the feed cost.
Durable and easy to clean
Properly pig facilities are of high importance paying dividends in terms of enhanced growth performance. The Pig Scale constructed of fully stainless steel and contains load cells of the highest standards (IP68). Making it durable and simple to clean and disinfect.
No in-pen modifications
The Pig Scale is easy to setup and install. No modification in the pen are required. It’s also easy to change between barns making it possible to get a quick indication of how pigs in other pens are performing.
