Liquid swine feeding systems were a highlighted topic at the most recent International Conference on Feed Efficiency in Swine, the kickoff to a five-year project to study swine feed efficiency.

The conference, held in Omaha, Neb., discussed the computerized systems that began in Europe and use high-moisture corn, wheat or barley. According to those who use the systems, benefits include less dust in the workplace, better labor efficiency and reduced staff turnover, as well as improved pig well-being potentially due to the quieter delivery system.


Another conference will be held in 2016 to discuss advancements in research.
