AutoPig from Agrisys sets a new standard for automation in weaner and finisher housing. Following installation in a pen, the unit immediately begins recording the pig’s weight, behaviour and health status. Using the intelligent ConSys control and integrated sensors, AutoPig provides information from the pen – about e.g. average weight, temperature, activity, water, any injuries, early warnings about development in the pen etc. Integration of AutoPig with the feed system also provides information about e.g. feed per kg growth
A monitoring system for weaner or finisher housing that measures in real time. The base unit consists of pass-through scales that automatically measure the daily growth of the pigs. Additional sensors can also be connected, at the time of purchase or later, for example drinking bowl sensors, pig surface temperature sensors or ear tag readers. The system sends data to a dashboard that provides an overall display of the pigs’ current performance, with the option of viewing data on a PC or a smartphone. Simultaneous data input from multiple sensors, e.g. growth and water, means data that is more valid and therefore easier to respond to. For example, if the pigs have 1 day of both low growth and low water consumption, it is very likely that something can be optimised. This method can be used to create a reference pen in one or more sections to allow continuous evaluation of potential optimisation of care of the pigs. In this way mistakes can be avoided and/or new measures introduced for improving the pigs’ growth. This can also be used to address challenges in reducing the use of medicinal zinc when weaning, and/or reducing antibiotic use.
