Title : Descriptive study of the microbiological contamination load of the liquid feeding system in nine pig farms. - 2 : Effect of residual liquids and feeds.
Authors : E. ROYER, G. MOUNDY, J. ALBAR et G.-P. MARTINEAU
Summary : For several years, liquid feeding systems have been designed to allow a separation of mixtures by pipe mouse or rinse water, which limits the amount of residual liquid feed left in the mixing tank or in the main pipeline. Between meals, the pipeline is filled with water. The present study focuses on the effect of water, dry feed, and rinse water and/or residual liquid feed on the final microbiological contamination load. The contamination of liquid feed depending on its components (water, dry feed) has been evaluated. Results support previous published findings on dry and wet feed feeding, including when wet corn was used.
