Feed and grain storage is of utmost importance in pig farming as it plays a crucial role in ensuring the health and productivity of the pigs. Proper storage of feed and grain is essential to prevent spoilage, contamination, and nutrient loss, which can lead to decreased feed quality and increased risk of disease transmission.
One of the key benefits of proper feed and grain storage is that it helps to maintain the nutritional quality of the feed. Pigs require a balanced diet that contains the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals to support their growth and overall health. However, if the feed is stored improperly, it can lose its nutritional value due to oxidation, moisture, and exposure to pests and rodents. This can lead to deficiencies in essential nutrients, which can cause health problems and reduce productivity.
Another important aspect of feed and grain storage is preventing contamination. Bacteria, fungi, and molds thrive in warm, humid environments, and can quickly grow on improperly stored feed and grain. This can lead to contamination of the feed, which can cause health problems in pigs, and even lead to food safety issues for humans consuming pork products. Therefore, proper storage of feed and grain is essential to prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms.
In addition to preventing nutrient loss and contamination, proper feed and grain storage can also help to reduce feed costs. When feed and grain are stored properly, they are less likely to spoil or be consumed by pests and rodents, which can reduce the amount of feed that needs to be discarded. This can result in significant cost savings for pig farmers, as feed is one of the largest expenses in pig production.
Fishmeal is one of the most used and most important sources of protein in pig feed – especially for piglets. The fishmeal protein is so important because it is highly digestible and does not provoke diarrhea.
Baby Care is a milk feeding system for the distribution of fresh milk to the piglets. When the piglets have constant access to milk, it results in a higher weight at weaning.
The liquid feeding system is fully automatic. It is programmed to provide an accurate and fast distribution of food. You can also make use of alternative ingredients and thereby save costs.
It is important to prepare the piglets for weaning, where piglets stop drinking milk and must eat feed. This can be done by understanding the piglets’ needs and their natural behavior.
Baby Feeder is a feeder that can be used by even the smallest pigs from 4 kg. The unique design of the feeder makes it possible to mix feed and water inside the trough, which ensures better hygiene and better hygiene and cleanliness.
The Intelligent Silo from BM is an efficient data collection tool, which offers accurate data from the crops in storage with an easy-to-use digital platform.
A stirring silo ensures elimination of hot spots in the grain and uniform mix of grain in the silo. At the same time, it makes it possible to mix variants of grain in the same silo.
Creating value in a pig farm is all about optimizing the feed in every step of the production. The feed for a sow must increase her milk production; for weaners, it is all about digestion and palatability
Common for domestic animal production is that reducing bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and waste products like ammonia is fundamental to increase animal health.
The protection of commodities against contamination is essential especially in crops used for feeding livestock. Here we talk about biosecurity, which is preventive measures to reduce the risk of transmission of infectious diseases.
