First, the pigs at each stage have different amounts of water, so we need to give them different amounts of water depending on the growth period of the pigs. The amount of drinking water should not be too high or too low. If it is too much, it will affect the health of the pig pen. If it is too low, the pig will be short of water, which will result in lack of water and eventually lead to indigestion.


In general, sows have the most water requirements. The adult sow weighs about 60 kg or so, so if the water supply is insufficient, it may lead to insufficient milk production. Pregnant sows need more water, about 12 to 15 kg.


If it is a piglet, then its weight is 5 to 15 kilograms, then its daily water consumption is about 1-2 kilograms. In the pre-growth pig, which weighs about 15 to 50 kg, its drinking water is gradually increasing. By the time the pig grows, it weighs about 50 to 100 kilograms, and its drinking water gradually increases, about 5 to 8 kilograms.


Third, the temperature at which we feed pigs must be reasonable. The drinking water is warm in winter and normal in summer. The water temperature is most suitable at 20 to 25 ° C. If the water temperature is too high, it may cause abortion of the sow. If the water temperature is too low, it may cause the pig to diarrhea, which may cause the diarrhea of the pig.
