The EuroStyle™ Farrowing Crate ensures the sow eases herself down slowly to protect baby pigs but the bars won't restrict the sow as she's getting back up.
The swinging rump guard gates open forward and backward with a quick release stainless steel back gate, which allows for easy maneuver with just one hand so non-removable pins won't get dropped or misplaced.
A low back and four-bolt, convenient assembly are just two features of the Farmweld EuroStyle Farrowing Crate.
- European style, low back makes it easy for the farrowing room crew to access the sow and baby pigs. Height at the back of the crates is 25 inches (635mm) from the floor so workers can reach for pigs without having to climb over or open gates.
- Pig Saver Flip Bars are welded at the factory so there's no added installation at the farm. The flip bars - with no sharp edges, ensure the sow eases herself down slowly to protect baby pigs but the bars won't restrict the sow as she's getting back up.
- Swinging Rump Guard gates open forward and backward so that workers have excellent access for scraping behind the sow or assisting during farrowing even when the sow is right next to the gate.
- Quick -release back gate is easy to manipulate quickly with just one hand. Non-removable pins won't get dropped or misplaced.
- Made of solid rod construction for durability.
- A four bolt assembly reduces installation time and hassle.
- A swinging heat lamp rod allows position of heat where it is needed.
