We use the MealMeter in lactation with the feed hopper and like that the sow can eat at her own pleasure and don’t feel rushed when eating compared to regular hand feeding. We’re really pleased with the system.
The MealMeter works as part of a complete system in lactation. Inserted into the Lactation Boot, the MealMeter is latched into a stud for easy installation and removal. The Lactation Boot can either hold a drop feed line or the PigEasy Feed Hopper, depending on the current feeding system.
People often ask, “How do you adjust the feed flow?” You don’t, for a number of reasons.
The PigEasy System in Lactation was developed so that each sow has the ability to “self-regulate” her eating area. With the Lactation Water Pipe and Button Nipple in the PigEasy Sow Feeder, the sow cleans up the dispensed feed with every drink. The PigEasy Sow Feeder has a focused eating area so feed cannot build up in corners.
