Electronic sow feeding (ESF) is a change in the way we manage group sows and the market is rapidly shifting to raising sows in large open pens. Group housing for sows with electronic hog feed should allow stress-free and efficient pig breeding.
With an electronic sow feeder system, you save feed, improve animal welfare, and increase pig production. Converting your barn to an ESF system or adding this system to your new home will make managing your hog facility easier.

The advantage of the ESF dining station
Converting an existing site or building a new one with an electronic hog feed is one of the best ways to improve cost management and efficiency in hog production. With the electronic feeding system, you can control how much feed each pig in the group pen receives by feeding each pig individually.
This automated system allows each pig to feed in a comfortable environment in its pen, reducing overall stress and improving health. With electronic feeding, you increase broodstock comfort and at the same time reduce feed losses.
The ESF system improves the welfare and general health of each pig, leading to more live-born piglets and fewer health problems. With happier pigs, less noise. When you enter a hog pen where the ESF system is properly implemented, you will notice a drastic reduction in noise from a traditional stall.
The automation of the electronic pig feeding system will bring better flow to your site, more convenience for your pigs, and more pig farming.
