Feeding for piglets

Apart from dry feeding, liquid feeding for piglets has established more and more over the past few years.  

The following advantages are obvious:  

  • Little piglets prefer feed in liquid form (breast milk).
  • The properties of liquid feed are closest to this preferred feed intake.
  • High-quality liquid feed results in maximum feed intake.
  • Maximum feed intake in turn results in maximum efficiency of the piglets.
  • A good combination of feed and water (liquid feed) ensures minimum stress on the digestive tract of the piglets.
  • As a consequence, optimal health condition and high performance are reached.
  • The feed consumption, which is under optimal conditions by far higher with liquid feed compared to dry feed, guarantees amongst others also the piglets' weight increase.
  • Higher weight increases mean higher profits. Increases of 10 - 50 g per piglet and day during the whole growing period can be realized by TEWE liquid feeding systems compared with dry feeding systems.
  • Data from practical deployment of TEWE liquid feeding systems show daily weight increases of up to 600 g during the growing phase of 6 - 30 kg of live weight.
  • An additional increase of only 10 g/day means in a stock of 1000 pigs 10 kg/day or 3600 kg/year.
  • TEWE liquid feeding systems for piglets ensure the highest possible level of hygiene and this is the basis for each kind of supply by liquid feed!

TEWE Elektronic uses three different types of feeding systems which are shortly presented below:

  1. The Hydrofeed system with transmission lines or cycles allows a targeted group supply, even with smallest groups. A high level of hygiene is ensured by the aqua-air-cleaning system.
  2. The Airfeed system allows the targeted discharge of individual portions per valve.
    A high level of hygiene is ensured by the aqua-air-cleaning system.
  3. The No-residue feeding means that the feed is dosed into the pipeline and pushed forward by a water column taken from an external water tank.
