Novel way to provide cleaner water to outdoor sows

A new method of providing clean, fresh water to outdoor sows is being trialled which we hope will improve conception rates, numbers born alive and weaning weights.

 
The trial, on producer Robert Battersby’s unit, is using water tanks to supply clean water rather than a wallow trough which can become contaminated.
 
Anecdotal evidence so far suggests that the piglets weaned from sows drinking from the tanks are more even in size. For more information on this and other BPEX Innovation Fund projects, click here.
