❱❱ Pig equipment
registered growth and feed conversion
data, automatic individual feeding
for nursing and insemination areas,
applications for the gestation area such
as feeding stations and automatic heat
detection and separation. In addition,
a sorting system for fattening pigs
would allow the producer to match feed
types to growth and gender, he added.
Pointing out that a record number of
innovations (about 300) were submitted
to the EuroTier innovations commission
in the hope of winning a gold medal this
year, the commission's chairman Eberhard
Hartung said: "The importance of an
innovation for practical work and animal
welfare, as well as its impacts on farm
and labor management, the environment
and the energy situation are crucial for the
selection of award-winning products."

Pig equipment trends 
Asked about the trends in machinery,

equipment and management for pigs,
particularly, Hartung said: "This
year's very versatile innovative
trends in pig husbandry are
characterized not least by the
fact that technical solutions
are being offered for questions
arising in particular from more
recent framework conditions
concerning pig husbandry methods
and from improving animal
welfare in keeping methods.
"Generally, methods for
improving herd monitoring,
individual animal monitoring and
management, as well as for group
keeping of sows and of finishing
pigs, are becoming increasingly
important," said Hartung. "In the
feeding sector, great value is still
attached to operational reliability and
easy use of machinery and equipment.
Practicable products that provide
occupational material for pigs are also
still in demand."
