Pro Dromi® Up
One of the main issues of loose housing is the risk of more crushed piglet. For this reason most farmers with loose housing in farrowing confine the sow during the birth of the piglets to lower the risk of crushing. After de piglets have drunk enough colostrum, they have found there Nanny or creep and all treatments have taken place, the sows can be loose again. This period takes normally 4 to 6 days.
There are, however, also other options… The main risk on crushing lays in the first 48 hours. The piglets drink multiple times per hour and therefore stay with the sow or close to the sow – this is the moment that accidents occur.
If you want to avoid this risk completely, we can offer you Pro Dromi® Up including Vari lift floor.
