Lactating sows - feed intake monitoring

The KSU farm has recently implemented the Gestal Solo Lactating sows feeding system in its farrowing house.

Kansas State University is thrilled about this collaboration with the pork industry’s leader in lactating sow feeding. “The Gestal Solo system will allow us to more closely track feed intake patterns for lactating sows and determine how nutrient levels and management procedures influence intake and productivity,” says Dr. Mike Tokach, Kansas State University.

For Jyga Technologies, this collaboration is an important step towards a deeper understanding of lactating sows feeding, a crucial segment of pork production: “We are proud to have reached a collaboration agreement when it comes to swine feeding. We’re also thrill to start working with KSU’s solid swine research team,” says Stephan Clement, V-P Business Development of JYGA Technologies; a Quebec City area (Canada) based manufacturing company.
