Mating & Gestation - Water
Water is important - and especially for the sow as water consumption has a direct impact on the gestation period. Therefore, both accessibility and water quality and quantity have an impact on production efficiency. Several factors affect the water requirement, i.e. the composition of feed, the general health and temperature and climate conditions. Water can be supplied via AquaLevel with big trough, drinking valves or cups. In general, a gestation sow needs 12-20 litres of water per day.
