SKIOLD Jyden's weaner penning of fiber and fiberglass is built on the same concept. The difference lies in the choice of the material. Both fiber and fiberglass material has a minimal volume of only 10 mm, reducing the construction and investment need.
The penning is closed at a height of 65 cm with one horizontal pipe, giving a total height of 75 cm. It provides a suitable height of the pen while the piglets are growing - and at the same time, the height of the pen makes it easier to ventilate, minimizing the risk of tail biting.
The gate for the weaner pen must close tightly, ensuring that there is no dirt at the alley. At the same time it has to be easy to handle the weaners in and out of the pen, and it must also be easy for the staff to get in and out of the pen. Gates for weaner pens can be made with hinges and rods - at a width of 100 cm or 110 cm, depending on the width of the alley. Hinged gates should be adapted to the width of the alley to operate as a barrier gate, making the daily work of the unit easier. Alternatively, the gate can be mounted with hooks, providing a gate with in the whole width of the pen to provide a larger pen opening.
