Jyga Technologies has signed a collaboration alliance with Kansas State University (KSU) in Manhattan, KS. Jyga Technologies will provide its experience on lactating sow feed delivery and data collection to the KSU Swine Teaching and Research farm. The KSU farm has recently implemented the Gestal Solo Lactating sows feeding system in its farrowing house.
KSU is thrilled about this collaboration with the pork industry’s leader in lactating sow feeding. “The Gestal Solo system will allow us to more closely track feed intake patterns for lactating sows and determine how nutrient levels and management procedures influence intake and productivity” says Dr. Mike Tokach, KSU nutritionist.
For Jyga Technologies, this collaboration is an important step towards gaining a deeper understanding of feeding lactating sows, a crucial segment of pork production. “We are proud to have reached a collaboration agreement with the most recognized educational institution there is, when it comes to swine feeding. We’re also thrilled to start working with KSU’s solid swine research team,” says Stephan Clement, V-P Business Development of JYGA Technologies, a Quebec City area (Canada)-based manufacturing company.
The KSU Swine Teaching and Research Center is home to cutting-edge research in nutrition and reproduction. Jyga Technologies is a swine industry leader that has specialized in feeding lactating sows since 1994. For more information about KSU swine research, visit www.KSUswine.org.
