Sorti Sorting System
From Farms Systems
The Sorti Sorting System consists of a sorting station with weighing platform that allows for easy sorting of individual pigs from large group at a desired weight. The pen is divided into a staying area and two food zones. The animal can only access one of the food zones through the Sorti-system. In this set-up, the animals automatically go through sorting-system multiple times per day.
Pigs that meet the selection criteria of the slaughterhouse can easily be identified and removed from the group.
Because the pigs go several times a day through the system, data is collected and growth development can be monitored.
The sorti can sort color-marked pigs through color selection. This way sick or trailing animals can be separated from the group.
The system allows pigs to be kept in groups of 200 to 400 animals
The system was developed in 1999 because farmers were penalized on their deliveries to the slaughterhouse. The sorti is an accurate and reliable system for delivering pigs.

How does it work?
A department consists of areas with different functions. There is a staying area, lying area and two food zones. The animals can only access the food zones via the sorti-system to get the right type of food. After feeding they go back to the staying and lying areas through one-way gates.
When the animals are ready for delivery, the desired selection criteria have to be indicated in the pc and a selection of the pen is closed off. The system send only those animals into the closed pen that have the desired weight. Because the animals go through the systems about three to four times a day, all the qualifying animals are send into the closed pen in a short time period.
