The PigEasy Sow Feeder is a fresh approach to ad-lib feeding in farrowing for sow farms. Along with the MealMeter feed dispenser, the Sow Feeder’s exclusive design achieves maximum intake while eliminating feed waste. By serving as both her feed and water bowl, the Sow Feeder acts as a “dispensing regulator” for the MealMeter so she does not over-fill the bowl and cleans up her feed with every drink.
The outdated “big bowl” sow feeder was designed decades ago to hold mounds of feed when the swine industry was solely hand feeding in farrowing. With feeding ad-lib, a sow drops a small amount of feed at a time. All this extra space in these “big bowls” means feed begins to build up and eventually require cleaning.
Get rid of the “big bowl” mentality in farrowing and stop spending time throwing feed away. The PigEasy Sow Feeder has a more focused feeding area while giving her plenty of head space. Feed does not build up in the Sow Feeder because there are no hard to reach deep corners. Dispensed feed naturally lands in the center of the feeder and as she presses up on the button nipple to drink, water is cleaning up that area so it is ready for the next time the sow is ready to eat.
Save time and money on an extra side water bracket and fittings because the PigEasy Sow Feeder serves as the sow’s only source of water. This ensures she uses the water pipe in the bowl while at the same time greatly reduces water waste. With water not able to spray back, her pigs stay dry and healthy.
