Individual dribble feeding of fattening pigs compared to other feeding methods with particular attention to ethological aspects

Individual dribble feeding of fattening pigs compared to other feeding methods with particular attention to ethological aspects

Forschungsbericht Agrartechnik, Max Eyth Gesellschaft (111): 105pp

Segmenting the feed trough, each segment being individually supplied with liquid feed, significantly reduced competition as compared to group feeding. The proportion of actual to attempted evictions was reduced from 76% to 27%. No time-related peaks in social conflict were observed for the method. Daily weight gain was approx. 22 g higher and more uniform. Feed conversion/kg increased weight was improved by 0.18 kg.
