The Asserva company analysis of feed consumption and water consumption of each pig, as well as the number of trips to the feeders and drinking trough, allow the early detection of diseased animals. 
Tis product presents three interests:
- The reduction of drug costs, it is possible to isolate the diseased pig or to treat it individually before it contaminates its congeners.
- A reduction in the loss of exploitation, in fact the farmer generally detects the diseases when 20% of the animals are affected. With this system if one or two pigs are sick and treated early, the loss of exploitation will be widely decreased. 
- Traceability of feeding and medication is possible animal per animal. In a market requiring traceability, especially with the problem of antibiotics, this tool is an easy answer for the breeder. 
In addition, the individual RFID weighing (microchip) analyses the performance of each animal. It is easy to make a comparison between each group of piglets depending on the sow in maternity and to select very quickly the best, in order to perfect the livestock on interesting databases.
