Manipulation and investigation materials
To meet the pigs’ needs to investigation behaviour

Pigs investigate their surroundings by performing digging, sniffing, biting and chewing movements. Therefore, a lack of investigation and manipulation materials can adversely affect the behavior of the pigs. Some weaners and finishers develop tale biting behavior that is related to their current motivational state.

Therefore, the current Danish legislation set up the minimum standards for the protection of pigs (pig farming). According to the current rules, “pigs must have permanent access to a sufficient quantity of material to enable proper investigation and manipulation activities”

We offer several types of manipulation materials adapted to different types of pigs and pens.
