The OPTI-Farrow pen is developed for the sow to walk around freely in the pen, while everything is done to protect the newborn piglets. If wanted the sow can be hold fixed in the farrowing crate 3-4 days after farrowing.
The farrowing crate is designed for today’s larger sows, with focus on optimizing access to the teats. When the sow and the piglets feel the freedom, it has been proven, that the piglets have a significant higher weaning weight. By the creep nest, a divider, which can be lifted is installed.
This is making it easy to keep the piglets inside, just after farrowing and in return makes it easier to keep them out of the creep nest, when taking them out of the pen. The creep nest, which is placed against the walkway, makes it easy to inspect and treat the piglets, without the sow is disturbing the work. This is a pen which considers the sow, the piglets and the staff.
