PIPESTONE, Minn. — Nedap Livestock Management has recognized New Standard Group as a successful dealer of Nedap equipment and technology and a leading supporter of group sow housing with electronic sow feeding (ESF) in North America.
“New Standard Group is an experienced supplier that has gained the trust of many North American pork producers through their industry leadership,” says Brad Carson, swine equipment sales manager with Nedap U.S. “They have been a respected Nedap partner for decades, and we are proud to work with them.”
With locations in Manitoba and Alberta, Canada and South Dakota, U.S., New Standard Group has been working closely with Nedap to create awareness of ESF systems in North America. For more than a decade, they have supported the use of ESF as a tool for successfully managing sows in large groups.

Their team explains how ESF can help optimize sow performance in group gestation pens by supporting the needs of individual sows within the group. They also showcase how ESF is one part of a complete system for efficient sow management. The New Standard Group and Nedap partnership supports projects from the planning stage until farm operation is underway.
