One conveyor – three feeds

THREE pig diets can now be fed in the same building using a single conveyor, according to TFS.

It claims its AZA multi-phase feeding system allows feed to be matched more closely to pigs needs, so improving performance, grading and cost-effectiveness.

Diets containing medication can be shut off more easily to allow withdrawal times to be adhered to, it adds.

The AZA muti-phase feeding works using cable-operated slides that open and close apertures above drop-pipes to select diets, explains TFS.

It supplies phase feeding for existing systems with conveying tubes of 38, 48 and 60mm (1.5, 1.9 and 2.3in).

Cost of the conveyor is £15.40 an outlet (01572-813020).
