Water

Drinking water is vital for pigs and fresh water must be accessible for pigs of all age-groups.

Choosing the right drinking system in every unit is paramount for the health and well-being of the pigs and can make a big difference to the productivity of the farm with effects on health, reproduction and growth. For the young piglets that are learning to drink the system should encourage this behavior and systems for older pigs must ensure sufficient access points and water flow to meet their requirements. Water can be supplied via nipple drinkers or valves, or via drinking cups or Aqua Levels for reduced water waste and visible water level at all times.
