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.
