Innovation for the pig rearing industry - multiple benefits

CaviMax Farm E.A.T. 

Enhanced Animal-feed Technology

"Liquid pig feeding system that meets world wide animal feed innovation drivers"

Pilot study highlight........91%reduction in antibiotic usage* feeding liquid maize forage to pigs

 

Once again Farmergy is pushing the boundaries of innovation, this time it is for the pig feeding sector. Our partner company CaviMax which has been increasing biogas and biomethane yields of Anaerobic Digestion plants, are now maxing pig welfare and feeding with spectacular results.

Don't just take our word for it, you can visit our reference site in Italy and see the system in action. To gain an understanding of our system, please view this video that has been made by the manufacturers of the ROTOCAV hydrodynamic cavitation reactor at the heart of every CaviMax system.

HOW DOES CAVITATION INCREASE THE PROFITABILITY AND HEALTH OF YOUR HERD?

The CaviMax / ROTOCAV system using the force of rotational hydrodynamic cavitation reactors, creates cavitation micro-jetting bubbles in the liquid fraction of the feed which disintegrates the food / biomass into much, much smaller particles. The pig feed is subject to turbulence, sheer stresses as well as the cavitation bubble collapse field, all of these forces work together in synergy to disintegrate the solid biomass food, speeding up the biomass depolymerisation, breaking down molecular bonds and hydrolysing the macro-components (lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose) into easily digestible and bioavailable sugars.

BENEFITS OF TREATING MAIZE FORAGE WITH HYDRODYNAMIC CAVITATION

These following statements and claims have been witnessed and made by an independent veterinary practice, who have overseen this study. There are many innovations sought for the pig feeding and rearing sector in the UK, EU and Worldwide, those are of increasing pig herd health, decreasing feeding costs and amounts, and one of the most important drivers - to reduce and de-escalate antibiotic usage to reduce levels within the food chain and antibiotic resistance. These are our findings:-

-   Hydrodynamic cavitation reduces food particle sizes, greater bioavailability causes increased growth and faster growing rates

HYDRODYNAMIC CAVITATION PROVIDES GREATER ACCESS TO FEEDSTOCKS

Provides access to biomass feedstocks previouusly un-usable for pig feeding, thus giving better flexibility for your farm and soil types for growing of feed crops. Or utilize what would normally be considered a waste stream, by cavitating this can be rendered a healthy and readily available food source.

Cavitation also makes the pig feed homogeneous, which means that each pig is fed equal feed quality and our system enables feeding rates to be tailored for optimal growth rates. 

CAVITATION TREATMENT ENABLES MAIZE SILAGE TO BE FED TO PIGS, LEADING TO THE FOLLOWING VERIFIABLE BENEFITS DURING THE PILOT TRIAL:-

 

-   Reduce feeding costs of up to 25%

-   Improved immune system meaning decreased mortality

-   >90% reduction in antibiotic use (* 91% reduction of antibiotics administered in this pilot study, we wan't to replicate this result through more pilot trials, we are looking for partners)

-   Increased profits as pigs are finished off quicker with less feed, with a healthier quality of life with less illness

Please contact us let us know what product you are interested in, and we will get in touch to get some details from you to provide a budget quotation, then with further information and a meeting / site visit we can provide you with a formal quotation based upon your exact requirements.

ONE MACHINE MANY BENEFITS

Decreasing particle sizes and breaking down fibers is how we achieve the extra animal growth rates, however during treatment floating layers are reduced, and viscosity is also lowered, this reduces electrical loads and physical strains on mixers and pumps, as well as a healthy feed for animals.

FLEXIBLE INSTALLATIONS TO SUIT YOUR SIZE OF OPERATION

CaviMax has wide range of machines and configurations available to suit the number of animals in your herd. We can either build plug and play containerised units or can provide a bespoke engineering service to integrate the CaviMax into your feeding system. We work closely with you and your team to meet exact requirements based on the individual characteristics of the farm and the outcome required.

We have 2 sized systems to offer you:-

CaviMax PigEAT 1.0 for 5,000 - 10,000 pigs

CaviMax PigEAT 2.0 for more than 10,000 pigs

PILOTING TRIALS

We have a reference project on a farm in Italy that you are welcome to visit to see our technology in action, we are hosting study trips and open days to view our innovative farm feeding system technology. Please get in touch via our contacts page to register interest for a visit to our Italian reference project. We would like to set up further pilot trials in the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, European Union, Mexico and Russia. Please get in touch if you wish to work with Farmergy / CaviMax to prove this innovative feeding system will provide the benefits for your countries farming sector. We like to work with industry and independent veterinary practices / academic institutions / farming  associations / trade bodies to prove that our technology provides the benefits that we claim.

FROM FIELD TO FEED, HERE'S WHAT WE DO...

Here are some photos of maize before cavitation and after cavitation treatment, floating layers are reduced, and viscosity is also lowered, this reduces electrical loads and physical strains on mixers and pumps, as well as a healthy feed for animals.
