Good gilt management

Arno van Brandenburg, business development manager at Nedap, said that finetuning at animal level could be the next step in data use from individual feeding equipment and weighing units.

He said, “By looking more closely how a gilt or sow grew during the previous round of gestation, it is possible to much better monitor the current gestation, to achieve an optimum performance. In case there are gilts or sows that have been inseminated at a lower weight level but do grow well during gestation and are on track for a nice litter of piglets, there is the challenge: to guide these animals even better during gestation.”
