RESEARCH DOCUMENTS

Sow lactation feeding: A daily challenge

To achieve a feed consumption of 7-8 Kg
per day it is crucial to increase feeding frequency. The strategy should be to feed the lactating sow smaller meals, and not  necessary of equal
quantities, throughout the day. Even better is to provide the larger amounts of feed either
early in the morning or late at night when the
environment is cooler.

Giannis Karvelis, Nutritionist, 2014

Impact of sow energy status during farrowing on farrowing kinetics, frequency of stillborn piglets, and farrowing assistance

The present study suggests that allocation of at least 3 daily meals may improve energy status of the sow during farrowing and ameliorate the farrowing process and thereby reduce the number of stillborn piglets. The broken-line model with the breakpoint being 3.13 h indicated that sows might benefit from receiving up to as much as 8 daily meals shortly before farrowing.

Takele Feyera, Trine Friis Pedersen, Uffe Krogh, Leslie Foldager. 2018,

Feeding strategies during the lactation period for first-parity sows

Both an increased frequency of daily meals
and the use of wet feeding led to reduced mobilization of body reserves. Wet feeding reduced the weight loss, whereas the increased number of daily meals was associated with a lower backfat loss.
