Outdoor Area Details

As the floo­ring of the outdoor area is usually solid and the dung needs to be mechani­cally removed once to twice per week, it is espe­cially important that the sows and piglets are secured and the exercise area is made accessible by swinging away the exercise grilles.

  • The exit doors are available in high and low versions
  • They can be easily opened by the sow
  • Integrated flap for piglets
