Pigs.com:

At Adrie van de Pas' pig fattening farm, the system of liquid feeding is going to change. The long troughs are removed and a Variomix from Verba is introduced. "From one eating place per pig I am going back to almost one eating place per ten animals. Practical experiences with this way of providing supplementary feed are mixed, but I have seen at a large piglet farm that it works very well. That's why I see it as a challenge to make a success of it as well." But above all, Adrie opts for the extra square meters he can use for keeping fattening pigs. "Instead of four times eight animals, I can now keep two times 19 fatteners. Per year, I can deliver an additional 750 fattening pigs within the same stall space."
