Pigs

Individual data collection, both in sows, piglets and fattening pigs is our great strength, together with our flexibility in terms of trial designs, offers a wide range of research possibilities.

Sow herd

The farm has 90 sows. The animals are individually fed and monitored. This gives us the opportunity to engage in feeding research or research into genetics. At birth, all piglets are individually registered with an electronic ear tag so that all information of each animal can be stored.

Piglets and fattening pigs

We have pilot facilities for 360 piglets and 720 fattening pigs. Groups of 360 animals each. The pilot house is practice-oriented and low ammonia emission built. The main focus is feeding research but flexibility to fulfil other research needs is available.
