Phase Feeding

Phase feeding enables you to easily control what feed is given to which feeding place, weigh and mix the rations and quickly transport to its target point.

The concept of phase feeding is simple, the system allows you to implement a nutritional program according to the pigs age and weight, changing the diet as required, as quickly as possible without sacrificing growth performance, regardless of the number of diets used. This ensures feed conversion is optimised for an efficient feeding system.

As the pig grows, changes in feed mixes can be easily made to feed the pig according to age, weight and condition to optimise feed usage and eradicate any feed wastage. The ability to mix the ingredients in any combination makes the transition from one diet to another more gradual, importantly, minimising any growth stunts. You simply apply each group to one of the pre set feed curves, which has been programmed to automatically adjust the percentage change for a smooth transition from one feed type to another.

Collinson offer two phase feeding solutions; from the simpler Ration Feeding system where portions are mixed in the conveyor whilst in transit or the more sophisticated MultiFast system which incorporates a mixer weigher for optimum accuracy and detailed analysis tool.

  • "I spoke to Collinson, Adrian, the chap I worked with was really helpful and their flat rate system, Equity, seemed like a good piece of kit, it is robust and was exactly what I was looking for, I completed my system with a Collinson silo which is galvanised with a Slate Blue Plasteel finish and a conveyor to take the feed from the silo into the parlour. I would definitely recommend Equity"

The auger system was fitted on time & very smartly by your fitter, we were very impressed throughout. We chose Collinson after using the same Collinson feed bin over 30 years, the same one the auger has just been fitted too. Thank you."
