Babyfeed with automatic trough emptying
Babyfeed - suckling pig feeding with a new, optimized feeding trough for effective, automatic trough emptying
With the new Schauer Babyfeed suckling piglet feeding system, it is possible to feed milk replacers and pre-starters. The processing is automated. However, emptying the trough manually once a day is labour extensive and challenging to realize. The Baby suckling piglet feeding system can atomize this process no personnel involvement is required because of the newly designed feed trough. Among other things, the focus here was on good trough cleaning using the patented blow-out function. For this purpose, each feeding trough is blown out with short, successive blasts of compressed air, without soiling the farrowing pen reasonable. For even more effective cleaning, the trough can be filled automatically with little water before blowing it out so that residual feed is dampened and can thus be better removed.
Another focus of development was lower installation costs and faster and cheaper assembly. For this purpose, the new feeding station is made of durable, glass fibre reinforced plastic, which can be glued directly to the PVC pen profile. This system successfully prevents feed from entering behind the frame and increases hygienic conditions.
