Feeding constitutes the greatest cost for pig farms.
We at CIMA believe that LIQUID FEEDING produces maximum yield;
this is why we have specialised in manufacturing systems to dispense LIQUID FEED during every stage of breeding:
GESTATION: it is important to ensure a healthy diet and to observe the correct doses
during the various stages of pregnancy. LIQUID FEEDING
allows for accurate feed curves with a feed-water ratio that ensures
the satiation of sows even after insemination, when a reduced amount
of feed is administered.
FARROWING ROOM: LIQUID FEEDING is particularly important due to the sow’s high nutritional requirements
to produce milk. Liquid feeding: improves palatability and helps bridge nutrition deficiencies during lactation; it also benefits the sow with reduced weight loss (typical during lactation) and contributes to improving piglet weight homogeneity at weaning.
WEANING: we believe in the effectiveness of AD LIBITUM LIQUID FEEDING, with which piglets are fed continuously. This system allows
piglets to be weaned with liquid feed that is always fresh
and that is delivered in small amounts throughout the day, similar to lactation.
FINISHING: during this stage, when there is the highest feed consumption,
it is important to evaluate the best feeding system.
During this stage, LIQUID FEEDING helps improve feed yield, growth,
carcass characteristics upon slaughter, and even ham curing and shelf-life.
LIQUID PIG FEED A pig’s digestive system is specifically prepared to digest high-moisture foods. In fact, as demonstrated in dry feed animals, pigs repeatedly alternate eating and drinking, consuming larger amounts of water during the two hours.
Pig saliva has more of a physical function than a biochemical one;
therefore, liquid feeding excludes salivation without compromising digestive function.
Moreover, liquid feeding also enables for natural by-products,
which cannot be used in dry feeding, to be used to prepare the ration.
These by-products include derivatives of the transformation of milk into cheese (buttermilk and whey), brewery residues (yeasts and related products), molasses, solid waste from the confectionery and milling industry.
The economic and nutritional value of by-products. From an economic point of view, procurement, storage, and transformation costs are very low.
From a nutritional point of view, rations that include by-products are
made to meet the nutritional requirements of the animals whilst fully exploiting the qualitative and quantitative intake
of the by-products.
Liquid feeding also reduces food waste, eliminates dustiness,
which can potentially cause health problems, and even helps save water.
Liquid feeding also allows for the correct use of CORN COB MIX,
thereby preventing alterations due to aerobic fermentation.
The corn is harvested upon reaching its physiological maturity
(when the moisture content is 30%) and is an excellent product with
high nutritional value.
Moreover, the fact that it does not undergo a drying process results
in considerable savings.
Furthermore, corn cob mix can be easily stored in horizontal silos (trenches)
or vertical silos with fully automatic loading and unloading systems
for simple everyday use.
