Finrone Systems attend Farming Connect open day at state-of-the-art pig facility in Wales

Joe Neely and Calvin Forbes from Finrone Systems were in attendance this week at the latest Farming Connect event held at Glynllifon campus, Wales. The event included a guided tour of the new state-of-the-art, all under one roof pig facility which was designed and constructed by Finrone Systems for Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor’s Glynllifon Campus.

The new 40 sow unit houses pigs through all stages of development. It is the first birth to bacon facility of its kind in the UK to be housed under a single roof. The building includes the latest technology including automatic sow feeders from ERRA and low energy ventilation and touch screen controllers from CTI Control.

Joe Neely, Sales & Project Manager at Finrone Systems, was on hand during the tour to provide information about the building and the technology used within said, “We’re delighted to be here today to support Glynllifon Campus and Farming Connect. There has been a fantastic turnout and a lot of interest in the technology used in the building.

“this new facility will help to encourage and give young farmers confidence to enter into the pig industry”

Joe continued, “Both Finrone Systems and the college feel that this new facility will help to encourage and give young farmers confidence to enter into the pig industry. The facility is a wonderful example of the new technologies available to the pig sector.”

The event was attended by over 50 people including pig farmers, industry reps, media, including Ffermio and students from the college. Presentations included bio-security and disease prevention from Bob Stevenson and improving production efficiency from David Moorhouse.
