Optimisation of pig genetics

Nedap Pig Performance Testing creates transparency in regard to the best boar-sow combinations, leading to the most feed-efficient pigs. An essential element when it comes to responding to the growing demand. The system registers the main factors for the pig breeding sector: growth and feed intake. Generally, piglets from a preselected boar-sow combination are used. The individual weight and feed intake is registered every time the pig visits the station, on the basis of electronic individual animal identification.  Nedap Pig Performance Testing accurately identifies the differences in growth and feed  intake between animals. Nedap Pig Performance Testing shows which animals perform best, therefore enabling continuous, simple and accurate optimisation of genetics.

What makes the Nedap Pig Performance Testing unique is the accuracy of data registration (feed weighing has a reliability of 99% and the weight registration has a maximum deviation of 1 kilogram), the simple and clear operation of the system (has two digital displays) and securing all valuable data on a central server. The system determines the volume mass of the feed. If there is no feed in the hopper, the system will stop and issue an alarm notification.
