Prevent weaning dip with the Rondomat piglet feeder

Read more

The moment of weaning is a very critical and sensitive time for piglets. There is always a potential risk of weaning dip, as the piglets are taken away from their mother and moved to new surroundings.

In addition, they have to get used to different, solid feed. For a flying start in the piglet house, it is vital to ensure the transition at weaning is as smooth as possible so the piglets are guided through the weaning phase successfully. 

The Rondomat is a sensor-controlled piglet feeder that helps ensure a smooth post-weaning transition to weaner feed. The weaned piglets are given immediate access to clean, fresh feed without having to learn how to operate a feed trough system. This prevents the dip often experienced by piglets after weaning. The result is piglets in optimal health with good, fast growth. The Rondomat is suitable for use in sections housing up to 70 piglets.

Up to 35 grams higher growth

A feeding place in the pen that can be easily accessed by all the animals ensures better feed intake by the piglets in the first weeks post-weaning. Up to 20 piglets can eat at the Rondomat feeder at the same time. Seeing someone else eat encourages the appetite – and the same applies to piglets. Smaller piglets in particular benefit from the larger feeding places. Results from practice reveal that piglets can easily achieve up to 35 grams higher growth per day.

How does Rondomat work?

The Rondomat automatically doses feed as needed. Sensors detect whether there is any feed in the trough. As soon as the trough is empty, a small portion of feed mixed with water is provided in the trough. The feed/ water ratio can be set and adjusted over time. The feed in the trough is always fresh and tasty for the piglets. You will also notice that hardly any feed is wasted. 

Higher piglet uniformity

This spacious feeding place is very pleasant for the smallest piglets in the litter. These piglets often lag behind in growth during the first few days because it costs them too much effort to claim a place at the feeder. The Rondomat offers a lot more space and fresh feed is always available. In practice we see that the daily growth rate is relatively much higher in light piglets, and the uniformity in final weights is also better.
