Increases sow body condition and milk production by offering several meals during the day.

Maximizes the lactating sow’s feed intake for :

  • Maximizing sow's milk production

  • Producing heavier litters at weaning

  • Keeping the sows in a better body condition

  • Increasing farrowing rate

  • Giving birth to more piglets per sow per year


Streamlines and analyzes the sows' daily feed intake.

Every system follows individually and daily the sows' feed intake. With a detailed report, it's possible to make sure that all of the sows were enough fed and to make adjustments to their feed curves when needed.

  • Savings


    Working hours better invested. Better workload management because of less time spent in the farrowing rooms. Colored lights on the feeder indicates which sows need attention.

    Generated reports to locate low-consumption, limited and wasteful sows.

    Reduction of feed wastage. Wasteful sows will get the needed quantity of feed, no more, no less.

    Optional water management

    In a wet-dry feeding situation, managing the water directly on the GESTAL allows a better water and feed mixture control in order to optimize feed intake.

  • Improved sow performance

    Improved sow performance

    Shorter wean-to-estrus interval due to the sow better body condition at weaning.

    Higher farrowing rate. A better body condition throughout the process naturally leads to a higher number of piglets at the next farrowing.

    Increased sow longevity.

    Heavier litter weight at weaning. With a higher daily feed intake, the sows will produce more milk, having a direct impact on the litter weight at weaning.

Sow lactation feeding: A daily challenge

To achieve a 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 necessarily of equal quantities, throughout the day. Even better is to provide 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

This study suggests that eating at least 3 daily meals may improve the energy status of the sow during farrowing, reduce the overall farrowing duration, and thereby reduce the number of stillborn piglets. Results indicate 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,

The importance of feed intake in lactation on a sow's productivity

The findings of the study, generated using GESTAL feeders, from the ALDO farm were conclusive: maximizing feed intake during lactation is very important. Research has shown us that if sows lose too much weight during this period, there is a negative effect on subsequent reproductive performance. Read the results.
