• 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%.
