Piglets need fresh milk around-the-clock in order to achieve healthy growth. Piglait’s automated Cup System enables your piglets to determine their own feed intake, making sure they can reach their genetic potential.

Next to that, the sow will benefit as well. By preventing excessive backfat loss in lactation, for example due to large litters at the udder or low/insufficient feed intake, the reproductive performance of the sow will be improved in the next round. Therefore, the Piglait Cup System can also prevent second litter syndrome.

And last but not least, feeding the piglets with the Piglait Cup System saves you valuable working time and reduces the chance of mistakes and spoilage of milk replacer. In short: the Piglait Cup System improves piglet performance and lowers rearing costs!
