The floor of farrowing pens for loose sows can be designed in different ways, depending on the pen type and prioritization of needs. A part of the floor can be established as solid or drained floors, which can accommodate the sow’s need to perform nesting behavior, and can aid the sow to identify a resting area. A solid or drained surface also minimizes the risk of shoulder wounds. Alternatively, the pen can be fitted with a fully slatted floor in combination with plastic and cast iron slats.

The slatted floor has an opening width of max. 10 mm, preventing the piglets from getting caught whilst at the same time ensuring a good manure flow and pen hygiene.
