In order to stimulate heat for the sows, there must be the possibility of direct contact with at least one boar (snout by snout). By housing sows individually in a crate, the stall must be designed with an aisle in front of the crates - divided by a boar gates to define the area.
The boar gates can be provided with a fiber/ fiberglass or a panel plate, preventing the sows to see or to make contact with each other which provides optimum heat stimulation when the boar enters. Boar gates are available in different widths, which can be adapted to different widths of aisles. Boar gates (made of panels) can be operated manually from the rear of the crate, minimizing working time when moving the boar to the next group.
