Weaner unit

Pigs are moved to the weaner unit after weaning, which must meet the environmental requirements of the young animals. We offer the most up-to-date penning and micro environment for weaned pigs and provide a variety of systems and materials.

Weaner pens might be designed in many ways. The most common systems are made of 35 mm plastic board, 10 mm fiber panels or 50 mm plastic panels. The pen might be provided with trough for ad lib or restricted liquid feeding as well as dry feeding using ad lib feeder. Normally, we include a grid for contact between pigs in neighboring pens for controlling the pigs defecation behavior which is also supported by use of a sprinkling system wetting the floor in the desired dunging area. . The pen might be provided with small gates or gates with the width of the pen. The two climate cover can be made in several types of material and is offered as a two-part or three-part unit with manual or automatic opening via motor. The size of the cover is designed according to the number of pigs in the pen and the space allowance is based on an area of 0.09 – 0.11 m2 per pig providing a good microenvironment while maintaining a good pen hygiene. .

Water is provided via water cups as a standard securing plenty of water while reducing wastage.

Weaner pens with plastic boards

Two-climate weaner pens might be made of 35 mm plastic board in light gray color. The pen comprises a combination of closed and ventilated separation walls which offers the pigs the most optimal conditions for growth. The pen walls have a smooth and dense surface and are extremely easy to clean. The pens are built in modules and can be provided in a height of 62/75cm or closed in the lower 50 cm above floor with 2 overlying horizontal bars. The pens might include gates covering the width of the pen or small custom-made gates.

The contact grid can be made of stainless steel or galvanized steel. The two-climate cover is a two-part unit by default but can also be offered as a three-part unit made in a variety of materials as well as being fitted with galvanized hinges or a longitudinal rubber hinge. To facilitate inspection of the pigs the cover can be opened manually or automatically via electric motor. The penning is anchored to the floor via stainless steel posts and brackets.

Weaner pens with fiber panels

Penning is made of compact fiber, which is an incredibly strong and durable material despite the 10 mm thickness. This type of penning does not take up as much space in the weaner unit as penning made of plastic boards and plastic panels.

The design includes two-climate system with a combination of closed and ventilated penning, which provides the pigs with optimal conditions for growth. The pen sides have a smooth and dense surface and are extremely easy to clean. The pens are built in modules of 61/75 cm high panels or 50 cm high panels with two overlying horizontal steel bars. Pen gates might be made according to the width of the pen or as small custom-made gates.

The contact grid can be made of stainless steel or galvanized steel. The two-climate cover is a two-part unit by default but can also be offered as a three-part unit made in a variety of materials as well as being fitted with galvanized hinges or a longitudinal rubber hinge. To facilitate inspection of the pigs the cover can be opened manually or automatically via electric motor. . The penning is anchored to the floor via stainless steel posts and brackets.
