OG Signalfütterung - Wirtschaftlichkeitsprüfung der Signalfütterung zur Reduzierung von Tierverlusten in der Schweinehaltung

Contact: Dr. Christian Manteuffel

Duration: 2016-2019

Funding: Europäischer Landwirtschaftsfonds für die Entwicklung des ländlichen Raums

Abstract:
The signal feeding technology was developed by the FBN to reduce the frequency of agonistic interactions and the injury-related shortening of the life span of sows in group housing. It thus contributes to improving the animal welfare of sow husbandry. The technical implementation of signal feeding as a device is carried out in a parallel DIP project. A preliminary version of this device is evaluated by the OG "signal feeding" under practical aspects. In particular, the economic efficiency of signal feeding will be evaluated. At the same time, the solution is made available to other owners in a demonstration plant, thus accelerating its market launch.
