The sows are fed with the VDL600 tube feeding system. Therefore 1,100 VDL Dispensers 6.5L have been mounted, with a direct connection to the ø60mm transport tube. The dispensers are operated pneumatically.

The feed is supplied via 3 spiral augers to the central corridor, in which 2 distribution circuits are installed. These fill the feed circuits in the gestation house. It is possible to feed 3 types of feed by opening the takeover outlets of feed circuit 1 or 2 in the central corridor.
