In piglet raising, the fundament for an optimal fattening and slaughtering performance is laid. Already during the first days after birth, the energy and nutrient requirements of the suckling piglets – besides the milk of the sow – should be supplemented by the feeding out of small and frequent feed rations.

In order to provide the piglets in the farrowing pen with optimal nutrients, WEDA Dammann & Westerkamp GmbH have developed the “Easy Feeder“ which is immediately available. With this mobile and smooth running feeding automat, manual feeding in the farrowing section becomes uncomplicated and labour- saving. Compared with customary manual feeding methods, half of the time can be saved.

The feeding container holds 100 litres and has to be filled with at least 10 litres. After the filling with prestarter, the agitators automatically mix the dosificated components in the container. A scale displays the filling level. The agitators and the pump, especially developed by WEDA are switched separately from each other so that after the mixing is finished, only the pump will have to remain in operation.

The liquid feed is exactly dosificated by means of a lance. The dosification valve opens when the tip of the lance is slightly pressed against the trough. Depending on the flowability of the feed, the pump pressure at the container can be regulated infinitely variably. This prevents an uncontrolled splashing of feed from the feed containers. The viscosity of the liquid feed is guaranteed up to a dry substance content (DS) of 26 per cent.

For controlling the feed temperature, a thermometer is applied so that previously warmed-upfeed can again be controlled immediately before administration. The “Easy Feeder” operates with a standard voltage of 230 Volt. At the mobile construction, a cable reel with a retractor mechanism for the 25 m cable is situated. For security reasons, a “locking hook” is applied which prevents tearing out of the plug from the socket.

The carriage is equipped with ball-bearing mounted lockable wheels. Due to the low balance point and the light construction manner, the “Easy Feeder“ is tilt- resistant and easy to move. The rounded-off frame is robust and reliably prevents impact damages. Due to the ergonomic height of 1,100 mm, the innovation produced by WEDA is fast and easy to clean. On the outside, the container can be washed clean by means of a sponge and warm water. On the inside, it can easily be spray-washed by means of a hose-pipe.

For more than 70 years, WEDA’s name stands for innovation and reliability. Originally founded as an enterprise for the manufacture of wood gas generators, Dammann & Westerkamp GmbH (WEDA) have meanwhile become global market leaders in the domain of liquid feeding with more than 130 members of staff at their headquarters at Lutten. The WEDA company owns locations in almost 50 countries on all continents.

In their function as full providers in the field of modern pig managements, WEDA – besides the domains of feeding technology and house equipment – also attend upon the segments of ventilation technology and liquid manure treatment. WEDA possess more than two dozens of patents.

In 1996 – as the first enterprise of the branch – WEDA received the certification according to the international quality standards, DIN EN ISO 9000 ff. In 2001, the companies of WEDA and of Erich Stallkamp ESTA GmbH founded the WELtec BioPower GmbH enterprise.
