Improving Your Pig's Environment for Your Bottom Line
You need every advantage possible to succeed in the highly competitive pork market. That’s why it’s important to not only have the right nutrients, but also have the right environment for your pigs. Enteligen™ is a mobile on-farm application that your feed consultant or a Provimi Environmental Specialist uses to provide you with immediate recommendations for making environmental improvements at your farm.
Excessive air drafts, elevated temperatures, and poor social environments are just a few factors that can lead to reduced lactation and conception in sows, and reduced weights during post-weaning and finishing in market pigs.
Enteligen™ is designed to support walkthroughs for each barn – from farrowing to finisher barns. Whether your ventilation system is open house or controlled environment, the Enteligen™ system provides answers that fit your conditions. Key environmental areas in a barn audit include air quality, thermal environment, water and others. These are areas that ensure pig well-being and ultimately increase pork producers’ profitability.
The Enteligen™ App Evaluates the Following Factors:
Air Quality – humidity, ammonia level, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide
Water – nipple flow rate, height and allocation
Thermal Environment – environmental temperature, flooring and draft, and temperature fluctuation
Social Environment – floor space and type, and stocking density
Advanced Ventilation – heat transfer, sensible heat production, latent heat production, and fan tables
Feed – Feeder space and adjustment
General Health – stool condition, hoof health, coughing, sneezing and appearance
