The Next Game Changer in Feeding Pigs
A precision feeding system can help reduce costs by improving the efficiency of nutrients and feed, while also using traceability to enhance food safety and decreasing the environmental footprint by reducing feed waste. Phase feeding is the alternative and it meets the nutrient requirements of the best performing or the average pig which often results in over or under feeding pigs. Precision feeding feeds specific diets to individual pigs to meet their requirements and reduce feed waste and costs. Challenges in precision feeding include complexity in estimating individual nutrient requirements, the reliability of the electronic device and how cost effective they are. There is a lot of potential in precision feeding as it comes with many advantages too.
