Rooting and enrichment material

Rooting and enrichment material must be placed in the pen so that the pigs will have permanent access to a sufficient amount of straw or other manipulable material.

The need can be met by using:

  • Rooting and enrichment pipe for wooden logs (160 mm x 800 mm)
  • BoxToy, various wooden blocks for mounting on the pen - Straw racks of galvanized steel:
    • double straw rack with one half mounted on each side of the pen wall
    • double straw rack with plastic gable, to slide over the pen wall

Another way to establish rooting material is to allocate the feed by using Jyden's Swing feeders!
