The VERBA Pigletfeeder is a very accessible feeder for farrowing piglets and can be placed very easily in the partition wall of two farrowing pens. The farrowing piglets dose for themselves the feed from the feeder by simply playing with the feed bell. Because of the transparent storage bunker the feed bowl has to be refilled less often as piglet bowls which saves on labor costs. In addition, the feed stays fresh in the stainless steel trough so it is better absorbed by the piglets. The Piglet feeder is provided with a horizontal U-profile (standard 35 mm internal) which makes it easy to build into the partition wall. The Piglet feeder is also available with a removable trough. This trough is easy to remove and easy to clean. We also make other variations on the farrowing pen feeders, such as an easily reversible farrowing pen feeder with a trough on both sides. The Piglet feeder must be mounted to the wall and floor with mounting angles.
K-Series Dry Feed Tray:
The dry feeders of the VERBA K series are suitable for all types of piglet feed. The feeder is specially constructed for animals from 5 to 20 kg. Due to the low trough the young animals learn to eat easily. In combination with the Verba "Duo-drinker" a feeder from the K-series is the ideal solution for the farrowing house.
Scientific research from Wageningen University and Research from November 2020 shows that piglets that learn to eat solid feed already in the farrowing house benefit substantially through better growth, better health and better behavior of the farrowing piglets.
