The impact of liquid feed versus dry feed

Using the Neopigg® RescueCare automated liquid feeding concept can significantly increase the dry matter intake of piglets compared to dry feed intake pre-weaning. In a 2017 trial conducted in the Netherlands on a farm with 800 sows, Neopigg® RescueCare led to a dry matter intake of up to 1.5 kg per piglet, in addition to sow milk - from birth until weaning. In addition, the trial demonstrated piglet growth of 246 g per day from day 1 until weaning at 27 days of age, resulting in a weaning weight of 7.75 kg.
