360° Freedom Farrower®
The 360 Freedom Farrower® is the ideal solution for progressive farmers looking to upgrade their farrowing systems in response to growing demand for higher welfare standards. Now in use for 8 years, in 6 countries over 4 continents, the 360 Farrower is a proven & viable alternative to the farrowing crate.
The unique design of the 360 Farrower® gives the sow freedom of movement whilst retaining the footprint of a conventional crate. Moveable restraining bars enable close containment when necessary for the safety of staff.
The advantages of the 360 Freedom Farrower® typically include good udder presentation, higher sow feed intakes, heavier weaning weights and piglet mortality rates comparable with standard farrowing systems. Expect significant improvements in sow condition at weaning.
Welfare & Wellbeing
Higher levels of animal welfare bring benefits to both the pigs and your business by reducing stress levels in the animals and enhancing performance. All of our experience shows that lactating sows are more contented and relaxed in the 360 Freedom Farrower® providing for improved milk 'let down', fewer interventions and a reduced requirement for medications.
The innovative design of the 360° Freedom Farrower® has been well received by animal welfare bodies and has won approval from Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) when used in conjunction with minimal confinement and adequate manipulable materials.
