A new sow farm was built in Maasbree (Limburg) in 2011. By 2015, this company has doubled. The farmer chose WECO boxes for the pregnant sows, so that the sows could walk freely around the boxes.
The farrowing boxes are made with slurry trays with coated, balance floors. The sow can not lay on the piglets, which reduces the chance of dead piglets by overlaying.
The air enters below the trays: the air reaches the sow constantly. In addition, stable climate control in the room is guaranteed.
The piglet pens are made of a complete plastic slatted floor, combined with cast iron. This classification creates a warm part (where the piglets are) and a cold part (for the piglets make manure).
