Blu’Hox™ is an automated feeding system for meat pigs. The sturdy design makes the Blu’Hox feeder pans some of the most durable on the market. The trough has a round design with plenty of gaps to look through, as pigs prefer to live and eat together by their very nature. Young piglets that follow their instinct and eat together grow better and more consistently.
Roxell’s Blu’Hox feeding systems for meat pigs come in three categories. The Blu’Hox range for piglets is suitable for pigs up to 30 kg (66 lb) or 45 kg (99 lb).
AD LIB FEEDER PAN WITH DRINKING NIPPLES
Water nipples are integrated into the pan, catering to the piglets’ urge to alternate eating with drinking water. Water encourages eating, improves digestion, and promotes consistent growth.
ROUND DESIGN WITH PLENTY OF FEEDING SPOTS
The round shape of the pan supports the piglets’ social nature, helping them to learn from each other. There is no competition for a feeding point, as the trough can be accessed on all sides. The piglets frequently move around, from nipple to nipple, without leaving the Blu’Hox.
No feed or water spillages.
MOIST PASTE INCREASES FEED INTAKE
Water spills from the nipple are collected in the pan. The piglets mix the water and the feed to create a moist paste. The wet composition increases daily feed intake by 30 %.
ADJUST FEED VOLUME EASILY AND ACCURATELY
Blu’Hox has 20 different feed settings, so you can control the feed volume precisely.
TROUGH SHAPE TAILORED TO PIGLETS
The piglets can get very close to the pan with their feet, allowing them to feed without actually getting into it. The feed is also kept neatly in the middle of the feeder pan, making it easy to reach.
EASY TO CLEAN
The round shape of the trough means the feed doesn’t collect in corners. The stainless steel material of the pan makes it quick to clean. The cover on the Blu’Hox prevents any dust entering the feed tray. The flap protects the feed against the smell of ammonia.
