Fancom partner Yoshimoto Agri just finished the first pig production project in Japan using the Fancom Farotek farrowing feeding system for individual feeding of sows in the farrowing house. A total of 180 FaroTek systems are installed in 5 farrowing sections.
The FaroTek system helps them to control feed costs and keeps the sows in top condition. The sows have a higher feed intake and lose less body condition resulting in higher milk production and larger and more uniform litters. Using the FaroTek system also eases sow management. All sow data can be accessed via the handy TouchTek units in the section. As only the sows in this specific section are shown, they can work quickly and efficiently using short lists. The TouchTek units are linked in a network to a central PC for clear and complete sow management.
