- Faster weight gain
- Larger litters of piglets
- Increased fertility
- A longer period of lactation
- Significantly lower the cost of treatment
It was observed that after feeding pigs with a new diet, their prolonged lactation, piglets quickly gained more weight. Once weaned piglets give freshly sprouted barley feed, it had a significant impact on their weight gain, it was much higher than at the same age piglets, that were fed a normal diet .
The vets bill at the farm were reduced by 95% for the sows and piglets on the hydroponic sprouting barley and the farmer reduced her feeding costs in these trials by approx 50%.
