Sow barn remodeling
Transform your facility. Transform your definition of success
Put your sows’ needs first
Get the most out of your sow barn remodeling project
Don’t let the age or size of your stall barn discourage you from remodeling to group housing. We have worked in barns of all sizes and styles, designing group sow gestation pens that are comfortable for sows to support efficient production. With our experience in sow barn remodeling, we can design new dynamic or static group pens over existing slatted floors in your stalled barn.
Not sure where to start? We are, and we will be with you every step of the way – before, during and after your sow barn remodeling project.
Ask 10 pork producers to describe their farms, and you’ll get 10 answers. Ask the same group the most important thing about their farms, and they’ll probably say, “Our people and our pigs.”
Correctly-designed sow gestation pens can help you make the most of the benefits of group sow housing, including improved sow well-being, increased ability to observe sows and a quieter, more pleasant working environment. An important part of sow pen design is minimizing conflict when feeding sows.
The right design includes feeders with forward exits. Separating the feeder entrance and exit creates create one-way sow traffic to minimize confrontation between fed and unfed sows. Our system’s design discourages boss sows from guarding the entrance to the feeder. It also protects all sows while they eat their individual rations.
