Mobile medication unit for pig herds
MEDICATING pig pens individually is now possible using a mobile medication unit from Meyer Lohne.
When required, the medication tank is hung on the feeding line of the corresponding valve and connected with the valve control contacts using an adapter. A pump on the equipment mixes medication with feed in the down pipe, preventing it from contaminating feeding lines, according to the company.
Because the tank can be moved to different pens, fixed medication valves and lines are no longer required, it adds. Each unit costs £150 (01604-740240, fax 01604-740649).
