ESF Feeding

SKIOLD is a specialist in electronic sow feeding

ESF is one of the most prevalent systems in Danish pig production. Several tests have therefore been made to identify the best way to use the system. You can either have the sows in constant or dynamic groups.
Constant groups are typically formed by one weekly team once and for all. This way, the dominance hierarchy fights will only happen once in the sows' gestation period.

Dynamic groups are formed on a continual basis, where new sows are introduced with fixed intervals. SKIOLD continues to develop the ESF management strategies in cooperation with The Danish Knowledge Centre for Pigs (VSP). The key to success with ESF in the gestation areas is to establish good practice conditions for the young female pigs before they are placed in the gestation area.
