The VERBA ZB sow feeder is the ideal tongue feeder for ad-lib feeding and is suitable for groups of 10-12 sows. The clever VERBA dosing tongue keeps the sows calm during eating and limits the amount they eat better than a dry feeder.
In large groups, different pig feeders can be used. The dry feeder can be very precisely adjusted so that the sows don’t overeat, and forces them to eat calmly. The adjustment facility is also ideal for daily rationing. The raised trough means that the sows can easily reach the feed and don’t leave feed residues. The trough stays nice and clean. Combined with the stainless steel DRN 4 drinking trough, this is the ideal solution for sows in group housing with ad-lib feeding. We recommend installing drinking troughs (preferably a DRN 4) at least 1 m away from the ZB. Further away is no problem.
For gilts we have the ZB feeder with lowered trough.
Guarantee: 3 Years on construction- and material faults; drinking nipples 1 year on construction faults.
The feeder must be mounted firmly at the back and should be fixed to the ground in a corner of the pen.
