Feed Spacing- Crystal Spring Hog Equipment


Less feed space is required when using a Crystal Spring ® wet/dry feeder

Did you know that when using a Crystal Spring ® wet/dry adjustable shelf feeder as opposed to a dry feeder you can place more pigs per feed space? Because of the ability of making slurry feed, in a wet/dry feeder pigs will eat up to 80% faster allowing to place more pigs per feed space in a pen.  Our 35 years of experience and research found that the ideal ratio for the best performance with regards to ADG (Average Daily Gain) and FCR (Feed Conversion Ratio) is between 13.5 and 15 pigs per feed space.

Of course that optimum performance relies on the ability of controlling water flow in your feeder, but that`s a spoiler for next week`s feed…
