BeFree farrowing pen

"An important factor in the descision in favour of BeFree pen was, that the sow has maximum freedom of movement in the pen. We also liked, that workers safety is an important consideration in the design." Martin Wimmer, Farmer of the Year 2015

 

Achieve maximum of animal welfare and labour effi­ci­ency with minimum mate­rial input.

Due to the unique patented geometry of the farro­wing pen it is possible to provide a sow with 4,2 m² area for move­ment with 6 m² pen area. The specially desi­gned swivel bracket allows a full func­tio­na­lity of the piglet protec­tion cage in a closed state for the safety of newborn piglets. If the fence is swivelled 90° to the piglet nest, the grea­test freedom of move­ment is ensured for the sow, because “dead” inac­ces­sible corners are avoided. A big piglet nest with shut-off valve and optional lid offer optimal start condi­tions for the piglets. The sow can get both feed and straw in the trough area with a combined trough.
