The design of JLF10 provides the sow with complete freedom of movement and opportunity to perform more natural behaviors. The dimensions of JLF10 is based on modern sow production for loose, lactating sows with large litters. There is no equipment in front of the udder, thus providing improved access to the udder, fewer teat fights and calmer nursings with high milk uptake for all piglets in the litter.
The design of the pen ensures that sows are facing the back wall during farrowing. This facilitates easy farrowing assistance and the piglets are born onto the solid floor where floor heat can be incorporated. Floor heat minimizes cooling of newborn piglets and thus improves piglet vitality.
