Sustainable and feed efficient dispensers

The VDL dispensers are known for their their unrivalled accuracy and excellent quality for decades.

Together with our VDL600 tube feeding system, we offer very reliable and sustainable feeding systems for all types of pig farms.

Unrivalled accuracy
In a study we tested the VDL dispenser and 7 other dispensers offered in the market. We tested under favourable conditions, so high quality of feed and low vibration in the feedline. And under unfavourable conditions, pressure of feed on the dispenser during filling time, vibrations caused by the feeding line or by the sows.


  • External conditions have no effect on the efficiency of the VDL dispenser
  • VDL dispensers have a positive effect on the feed costs. This is a major advantage, taking into account that feed cost determine for a great part the cost price of the piglets.

“We are very satisfied with our dispensers of 30 years old and the latest generation dispensers.”

Maurice Voets, manager Heijderhoeve
3,800 sows

“We chose the VDL feeding system because we have had good experiences with it for years. It has always worked well and we are extremely satisfied with it”, says Maurice.

State of the art project with De Heus in Vietnam

Royal De Heus recently opened one of the most state of the art sow farms in Vietnam.

The preference of De Heus for VDL Agrotech was obvious for the design of this ultramodern GP Soc Trang pig farm. "The VDL Agrotech system is an animal-friendly system that guarantees animal welfare. In addition, as it is an automatic system, it also contributes to a reduction of labor costs," according Fred de Cocq, pig expert De Heus.
