Frequent and small feedings to boost feed intake
To ease the transition from sow milk to solid feed it is important that the piglets at an early age get used to feed based on easily digestible raw materials.
To avoid wasting feed and to maintain the news effect of the feed, the right amount should be supplied. This is secured with small but frequent feedings.
This set of 3 shovels has therefore been developed to dose an appropriate amount adapted to the age of the piglet.
