Hog Slat's New Medicator Offers Practical On-Farm Solutions

11 July 2016

US - Rated for use up to 11 GPM, the Hog Slat medicator can handle all your medicating, cleaning and vaccination needs. The fixed ratio 1:128 pump features reinforced valve support, a long lasting three-part spring design, easy-to-mount bracket and proven top and bottom seals.

Hog Slat's Scott Bauck speaks to ThePigSite's Sarah Mikesell at the World Pork Expo.

Hog Slat co-branded and designed the Medicator with one of the leading manufacturers of medicators in the world.

"What we asked them to do is to build us a compact unit, and we asked them to use some of the proven technology that we actually started out with 30 years ago from the original flat top. Then we asked them to increase the volume and incorporate improved materials in the seals and plungers," said Hog Slat's Scott Bauck. "This is a unit that we went to them said we'd like to buy a volume, and we'd like to buy it for a price that we are able to pass on to producers."
