The Maximus Loose Housing Electronic Sow Feeding System is fully integrated with the Maximus Controller on your farm. Maximus uses all of its technology associated with controlling you ventilation, feed, lighting and alarm systems to now also feed and monitor your gestating sows in the BEST most animal friendly pen setting. Instead of just housing sows together and individually feeding each sow – we work with producers to develop and design the best environment for the sows. Our experience has proven that when sows are penned together in an environment that reduces stress, aggression, and competition – the need to separate sows by parity, provide extensive pre-training and continually sort and remix sows is both unnecessary and detrimental for animal welfare.
Well-being of your animals and reduced operational costs means improved profitability for your company.
Optimal conditions in your facilities at all times.
Automated management of a wide range of parameters: feeding, temperature, lighting, air quality, etc.
