GERMANY - Growing commercial pigs to produce tasteful, healthy and safe meat requires the best of everything - healthy piglets, nutritious feed, fresh air and comfortable housing.

Once all these valuable resources are in place, it takes adequate skills to fine-tune them to the need of the animals. But how can you tell what needs to be done? Managing growing pigs without knowing their weight, their health and their individual behavior is like driving a car in the dark without headlights.

Nedap Velos Sorting provides the light to see where you are going. Pigs are comfortable housed in social groups of 250 to 400 animals, allowing them to express their natural behavior. The pig’s environment is equipped to provide suitable areas for sleeping, eating and activity. On their way to the feeding area, pigs are individually weighted and guided to their appropriate feed type. One-way gates allow easy return to the residential pen. Large spaces allow pig to find their own comfort zone of climate and companions.

Nedap Velos Sorting is the easiest way to let your pigs grow: always the right feed to the needs of the pig, always real-time information on their weight development, and most important: always delivering the exact weight to the slaughterhouse. Nedap Velos Sorting outperforms all sorting systems by adding individual identification to the weigh collection. Thus, weight data is more relevant and feed management and sorting are more effective.

With Nedap Velos Sorting pig farmers can opt to share vital information with stakeholders of his choice. At the farm site, were daily management determines profitability. With the feed plant to monitor how pigs are performing on their mixtures. With veterinarians, allowing direct insight into the health development. And towards the processing plant, adding vital logistic information to the value of the pig being delivered.
