As a former pig farmer, we know what matters for an optimal pig feeding system. We have managed to unite all the positive points of different feeding systems into one pig feeder. Not for nothing pig farmers all over the world use the VERBA Speedfeeder.
The Speedfeeder is a feeder with a clapper system for larger groups of pigs and is particularly suitable for coarser feed, such as pellet feed, pellet feed or crumb feed. The feed is dispensed through a unique dispensing mechanism made entirely of stainless steel 304, where the piglets or fattening pigs push against the flapper unnoticed during feeding. Due to the unique operation of the valve and the stainless steel round bar in front of the valve, the feed valve cannot become clogged with feed, which is sometimes a problem with other liquid feeders. Small portions of feed are dispensed through the stainless steel valve. At the front of the stainless steel trough is a smart anti spill edge and at the side are anti spill bars welded into the trough. As a result, virtually no feed spillage occurs. This contributes to an optimal feed conversion that is enormously cost-saving. The white transparent feed bunker of this feeder has the advantage that you can quickly determine the feed quantity during your control round. One pig feeder has two separate dosing systems allowing 2 pens to be fed separately. Various stainless steel U-profiles are available on the trough so that this liquid feeder can be built into any plastic or concrete partition wall. The adjustment of the trough takes place by a spindle which can be set very accurately and cannot move out of position, so that the valve always doses the set amount of feed. Because the valve cannot adjust itself if the valve is pushed very hard, there is virtually no spillage of feed and the feeder is cost effective. The best feed dosage is 4 grams per movement of the valve. A 1/2″ stainless steel water line is mounted on this pig feeder with single 1 down pipe to which 4 stainless steel Verba drinking nipples are connected. This one half inch down pipe allows for low connection costs. The Speedfeeder pig feeder comes standard with a lid. The entire speedfeeder feeder is mounted with stainless steel A2 bolts M8 with lock nuts. Make sure that the Speedfeeder can always feed and is therefore not empty so that the pigs always have feed available and are not rationed.
