Not All Group Housing is Created Equal [Infographic]

11.29.2018

 

Group housing is group housing, right?

Loose sow housing is loose sow housing, right?

Wrong.

We've seen it so many times. Other companies are promoting their equipment that only work with their own version of "loose" sow housing. The only problem is that a majority of current design offerings keep sows in stalls for just under half of their gestation.

But it’s not just our opinions on which options are best for sows, the facts speak for themselves.

A Comparison of Creep Penning Options: Steel, PVC, or PanelTIM

11.28.2018

 

One area of production that is all too often overlooked is creep penning. We would argue that some of the most important work of the farm happens in the farrowing room, and the materials used in creep penning can make or break your farrowing unit. 

Animals are only in the farrowing unit for a few short weeks and then the unit is washed and turned over to a new batch of sows and piglets. Because of this constant turnover and the biological vulnerability of piglets, having strong biosecurity matters. Your number one resource in maintaining good biosecurity in the farrowing unit is by using creep penning that is easy to sanitize.
