Mid West sow producers have seen the benefits in the MPS AGRI ESF system. Over 200 feeding stations and multiple gilt training stations are to be installed from the fall of 2016.

One of the elements of the MPS AGRI ESF system that has caught the attention of Producers, Veterinarians, and Sow Mananagement Groups, since the 2015 WPX, is the approach to gilt training that MPS AGRI applies.

The 3/4 size gilt training station is a smaller version of the feeding station that the animal will feed on in gestation for the rest of her productive life. Between the pen layout and design of the gilt training feeder, everything becomes so much easier for both the people in the barn, and the animals, as they transition to group housing.

Gilts can be trained to the equipment from around 20 weeks of age. A significant advantage of doing this there is no set back in nutritional requirements prior to service. Another plus for management is that there is no need for RFID tags and computer recording at this stage as the training station can function with no electronics.

The gilt trainer is designed with a stainless steel feeder and is built in the simple and robust manner as the full sized 'Cheiftain' feeding station.
