This is what farmers say:
"Since I chip and track my pigs individually, I go into the barn with even more pleasure!"
Henri de Vries has a 300 sow farrow-to-finish herd on multiple sites. In 2013 he started to use RFID-eartags; individual electronic eartags for newly born piglets, integrated in the legally required plastic identification tags. This way all animals born in the farm have an electronic ID and can be followed throughout the whole production chain by simply scanning the number with a reader.
’On our sow farm we work in a 3-week system and we tag the piglets at the day of birth. Although this has to be done very accurately, it hardly takes extra work. Everything goes electronically and we do not need to write anything on paper.‘ ’Since we have started following individual pigs, we’ve noticed a few things. We already knew before that the piglets with the lowest birth weight were the slowest growers and we discovered that leaving them with their littermates increased growth rate significantly.‘
’We also discovered that offspring of first parity sows, when given the same feed strategy, have a 35 grams lower live daily gain. After changing the feeding strategy for this group, we improved by 20 grams per day. This resulted in 3.6 kg higher market weight. A big improvement on approximately 20% of the animals.‘
