WET/DRY FEEDER TECHNOLOGY

Our original wet/dry feeder technology lets pigs mix their own slurry directly in their feeder. This results in more gain and less feed and water waste, making our feeders the most profitable in the industry.

Adaptive Flow™ TECHNOLOGY

Our Adaptive-Flow technology uses a patented silicone insert to create consistent and precise water flow control regardless of variable barn water pressures. This simplifies wet/dry feeder management, reduces water and feed wastage, and improves overall performance.

EASY ADJUST™

Our EZ-Adjust technology provides easy, repeatable, and precise feed flow control 1/16” (1.5mm) increments, for all feed types and quality. This mechanism is simple, innovative, and offers the industry’s most refined adjustment while simplifying feeder management in each growing phase.
