CallMatic 2 is the most advanced automatic feeding system for sows kept in groups (pen gestation), which provides true individual animal nutrition.

Why group housing?

    • Growing concern for animal welfare, demanding that sows are no longer confined to gestation stalls, will be turning into legislation all over the world
    • It allows the sows freedom of movement, social interaction and much more comfort
    • With proper management, sows enjoy better health and robustness and will thus show excellent performance
