The aim of this study was to show the possibility of application of a hydraulic motor powered dispenser in the existing feed mixture factories where dispensers are powered by electric motors. The study was conducted in a feed mixture factory in Croatia on samples of compound feed for pigs weighing up to 15 and 25 kilograms. The study determined the relative error as a means for comparing the calculations of the deviation between the hydraulic dispenser and the dispenser powered by standard electric motor. The research results indicate that in the 30 repeats of making pig mixtures none of the weighed components matched the given recipe. The hydraulic dispenser showed greater precision in adding the fish meal, extruded soy bean and soy bean meal in the mixture compared to the dispenser powered by electromotor.
