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

Optimizes the lactating sow’s feed intake for :

  • Maximizing sows 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.

Each unit tracks one sows' daily feed intake. With a detailed report, it's possible to make sure that all of the sows ate enough and to make adjustments to their feed curves when needed.

Strong and durable product

Engineered for pork producers, by pork producers, our products are strongly built and reliable. Pressure washable, all of our GESTAL products are certified ip66 and Nema 4x (waterproof and extreme weather resistant).

Saves electricity

No need to add additional electric - the GESTAL Quattro shares the same outlet as the heat lamp/mat. Using customizable heat curves and a temperature probe to adjust piglet area temperature daily, the Quattro reduces electricity demands while improving litter performance.



  • Savings


    Better workload management because of less time spent in the farrowing rooms.Colored lights on the feeder indicates which sows need attention and help to better manage the available labor.

    The Quattro allows energy savings by having customizable heat curves and a temperature probe to adjust piglet area temperature daily, the Quattro reduces electricity demands while improving litter performance.

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

    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.

    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.

  • Make sow data management easier

    Make sow data management easier

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

    Each feeder is WiFi compatible for rapid data transfer to handheld tablets and to help workers quickly transfer farrowing information and improve in-barn sow monitoring during farrowing.

  • Precision


    Feed management 24/7/365. No public holiday, no sick day for the GESTAL feeding systems.

    Feeding schedules and curves easily programmable by the producer. Parameters can be changed on the computer or directly on the Quattro unit and modifications will be automatically shared between both of them.

    Feeding distribution precise enough to be used for research purposes.

North Carolina State University

North Carolina State University uses GESTAL in their swine resarch farm in order to learn about sows feed intake in heat stressed related period. They have noticed that the versatility and flexibility of the GESTAL system’s schedule seems to have an impact on their sows’ daily feed intake.

duBreton Organic Meats

In its new organic sow operation, duBreton chose to feed their lactating sows with GESTAL. For them, feeding sows during lactation needs attention and accuracy. It is even more important in this case, with a weaning age of 28 days instead of the average of 21 days in conventional operations.

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.
