Swine - Structured Water

In 2011 structured water units, were installed on a large gestation, lactation facility in South Dakota. This is an 830 sow operation and records were kept to indicate any significant differences in weaned pigs/sow/year. The numbers clearly identified an increase of over 1.2 more piglets weaned/sow/year as compared to the previous year with the same herd. This equates to over 1000 more weaned pigs per year through more efficient hydration with structured water.
