SKIOLD Jyden's farrowing crate is designed with 50 cm pen walls that ensure the piglets will remain in the pen - without compromising on the ventilation or temperature of the piglets' area. The height of the pen walls also make it easy to inspect the sow and the piglets.
The pen can be designed with fiber, fiberglass or PVC-penning - and either as front-to-back or as sideway penning. All materials are dirt repellent, reducing the possibility of the accumulation of bacteria and making the pen walls easy to clean. A cleaner housing environment means less diseases, enabling an improved and healthier production.
SKIOLD Jyden puts a great focus on pen functionality that optimize the working environment as well as creating improved conditions for both sow and piglets. The rear gate is detachable and able to be opened at each side. The rear gate can easily be operated with only one hand, enabling easy access to the pen.
Additionally, the rear gate can also be tilted over a manure opening to avoid the piglets getting in danger on the first critical days after farrowing. This will help to increase the production performance.
