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.
