Electronic swine feeders are used to automatically measure individual feed intake on group-housed pigs, but the resulting data contain errors caused by feeder malfunctions and animal-feeder interactions. The objectives of this study were to 1) develop criteria to identify errors in data from an electronic feeder that is predominant in the United States; 2) evaluate the frequency of errors in data from three consecutive experiments using the same feeders; and 3) identify factors associated with… CONTINUE READING
