The VERBA KZB family feeder with special lowered trough is a very popular and unique pig feeder for farrowing pens for sows with piglets. It’s easily accessible for both sows and the nursery piglets. During their first weeks, the piglets learn to eat from the mother just like in nature. After weaning, the piglets no longer have to learn where to get their food from, and how the feeding trough works. The KZB feeder therefore has a low trough, and the dosing system is at a height that allows both the sow and the piglets to operate it. The best dose is 4 g per movement.
Guarantee: 3 Years on construction- and material faults; drinking nipples 1 year on construction faults. Drinking nipples are only suited for water, not for additives.
Customer E. with 120 x KZB family feeders: We wean at 28 days and 4 days after weaning we weigh the piglets. The weight of the litter is always around 117 kg on average. We always weigh 35 to 40 litters. We wean around 32 piglets per sow per year, but the weaning groups with smaller litters are often no lighter than the groups with larger litters.
