The FT30 pen was designed based on the Norwegian preferences for loose nursing sows. The result is a very flexible pen that can be used from birth to piglets weight of approx. 30 kg. By applying the “birth to 30 kg” system, you avoid transportation of piglets to the weaner unit. It means a lot less cleaning in comparison to traditional production. At the same time you save the pigs from stress, which gives a better daily gain and feed conversion.
The large piglet nest can be used for piglets up to 25-30 kg. The pen is particularly wellsuited for special production of welfare pigs.
