The Benefits Of ESF Feeding Stations

Electronic sow feeding (ESF) is a change in the way we manage sows in group pens and the North American market is rapidly transitioning to sows in large open pens. 

Group housing for sows with electronic sow feed should allow stress-free and efficient pig breeding. With an ESF system, you save feed, improve animal welfare, and increase pig production.  To get more information about the electronic sow feeders cost visit

Converting your barn to an ESF system or adding this system to your new barn will make it easier to manage your hog facility.

With the electronic feeding system, you can control how much feed each pig in group accommodation receives by feeding each pig individually. 

This automated system allows each pig to feed in a comfortable environment in its pen, reducing overall stress and improving health. With electronic feeding, you increase sow’s comfort and at the same time reduce food waste..

The ESF system improves the welfare and overall health of each pig, leading to more live-born piglets and fewer health problems. 

The automation behind this system makes it easier for you to implement a feeding strategy and even notifies you if the pig hasn't eaten its full portion. 

The technology developed in the feeding system has proven to be better for the health of pigs and piglets. By following the feed and reviewing the stored data, you can also better analyze your results.
