At the start of the month, I re-joined account manager Jim Gould and Technical Advisor Sam Bradley on a trial that is now in its third weighing, testing VIDA muesli. The trial has continued to get great results which is really positive. It will be running into next month, so I’ll keep updated with its progress!
During the visit, I had the opportunity to work with Sam whilst she ran checks on the temperature of the pens. This was the first time I’ve been a part of these checks which was really interesting to watch and learn how the right temperature can improve farm performance.
During our previous visit, we spotted an opportunity to move the pig feeders into the centre of the pen, the aim was to provide a warmer and more central location for the piglets to feed, to support intake. It was great to see this has now been implemented and I look forward to seeing the results this has at the next weighing.
