Jyga Technologies, based in Quebec City, Canada, received two Innov’SPACE stars for Gestal FM, a wireless individual feeding system for lactating sows. The product has been on the US and Canadian market for several years.
Verbakel, from the Netherlands, introduced MultiFeeder, a feeding system for pigs which can serve either dry feeding, liquid feeding or both. The product offers flexibility and the possibility to combine the best of both worlds.
