Who would have thought that Sears, Pontiac and the Houston Oilers would disappear…?
With the many past, present and future challenges that seriously jeopardize the profitability of pork producers, it is important to adapt to market needs but above all, to be ahead of the industry and constantly evolving. The use of innovative equipment is therefore essential for the survival of businesses, especially for it to be profitable. In a world where productivity is synonymous with survival, being “The Original” does not mean being the future, nor even to be performant and efficient.
It is in this sense that, at Zaxe, we are constantly developing innovative products at the cutting-edge of technology adapted to the agricultural reality. Investing in research and development is our main mission. That is the reason why we strive to be constantly on the lookout for your needs to adjust our products and thus, offer you the best of ag technology.
In fact, we can’t talk about R&D without mentioning the Zaxe 3P Feeder! It is one of our flagship products, in addition to being the most innovative feeder on the market in terms of precision feeding.
But why is it so important to invest in precision feeding? As a bonus, optimizing feed performance while reducing all costs is a winning combination. The main reason for investing in precision feeding is therefore to feed your sows according to their individual needs. By receiving their daily feed ration according to their lactation stage, your sows maintain an adequate body condition, thus ensuring them winning conditions for a next parity. Indeed, it is important that your sows maintain their body condition when leaving farrowing to have a positive impact on subsequent parities. This even allows you to reduce your feed costs since a gestating sow too lean will need to eat more to reach a good body condition and have enough energy to feed her piglets in farrowing. On the other hand, a sow that is too fat in gestation will cause multiple problems and will have difficulty farrowing, thus affecting your production performance. So, good body condition in gestation results in good parities in farrowing, and so on. So, the key to success in precision feeding is to make sure that your sows are feeding adequately by respecting their feeding curve according to their lactation day.
One of the most important things to achieve these goals is therefore to make sure your sows are eating properly. By choosing the Zaxe 3P Feeder, you will never have to worry about whether your sows have been fed or not. Indeed, thanks to its unique and patented smart feed detection sensor we call the Bobble head, you now have the certainty that your sows have received their daily feed ration or be notified to rectify the situation. As mentioned above, a sow that is fed according to her individual needs will maintain good body condition, which will have a positive impact on her parities and your performance. The investment in an electronic feeding system is considerable. So why choose a system that does not certify that the feed has been distributed?
But beware of false promises! There are several models of feeders on the market, but they don’t all offer the same benefits. It is therefore important to ask yourself the right questions. How do I know if the feed has been distributed? What happens if it’s not the case? How can you make sure your sows’ dietary needs are met? These are all things to consider when choosing your equipment to meet your production needs. Indeed, some will tell you that you don’t need all of it to operate your farm, for the sole reason that they don’t have such products. In other words, it’s easy to say, but not as easy to put in action!
Profitability, sustainability and evolution are three important words for us. This is why it is essential to make the right choice on the equipment which will be adapted to the many changes, and which will be able to meet these challenges. Or, as Steve Jobs would say, “Innovation is a situation that you choose because you have a burning passion for something.”
