Feed distribution system over age.

It is worth mentioning what we currently refer to as a wet delivery system, which consists of dosing a food mixture containing a solid portion and a liquid portion (SOPAS) allowing cattle to have a satisfactory and more sustainable intake. The strength of this feed delivery system is that it is controlled via computer software which provides several advantages:

  • Change the intake dose from day to day.
  • Make dietary changes to the pig diet.
  • Having a homogeneous and regular cattle growth.
  • Organoleptic improvements with meat as the final product.
  • Control feed consumption and experience less loss.
  • Reduce slurry production and nitrogen percentage.

This feed distribution solution requires more complex facilities than traditional dry feed distribution, but provides much more controlled and advantageous nutritional and growth benefits for cattle. Pigs develop with a more gradual and more regular growth; but in terms of health and meat quality, the improvement is phenomenal. Therefore, we are faced with a much more efficient feed distribution system.
