The BeFree free farrowing pen has now established itself as one of the leading free farrowing systems in Europe and has been further developed in important details. An innovative and modular concept for the piglet nest allows it to be flexibly adapted to different size ratios, even up to the rearing of the piglets in the pen (FT 30 - farrow to 30 kg). A large piglet nest with a closeable flap and full cover with integrated flap offers optimal starting conditions for the piglets. The sow can be offered feed and straw in the combined trough. Protective bracket for temporarily sow fixation.

"An important factor in the desci­sion in favour of BeFree pen was, that the sow has maximum freedom of move­ment in the pen. We also liked, that workers safety is an important conside­ra­tion in the design." Martin Wimmer, Farmer of the Year 2015

Achieve maximum of animal welfare and labour effi­ci­ency with minimum mate­rial input. 

Due to the unique patented geometry of the farro­wing pen it is possible to provide a sow with 4,2 m² area for move­ment with 6 m² pen area. The specially desi­gned swivel bracket allows a full func­tio­na­lity of the piglet protec­tion cage in a closed state for the safety of newborn piglets. If the fence is swivelled 90° to the piglet nest, the grea­test freedom of move­ment is ensured for the sow, because “dead” inac­ces­sible corners are avoided. A big piglet nest with shut-off valve and optional lid offer optimal start condi­tions for the piglets. The sow can get both feed and straw in the trough area with a combined trough.
