Farrowing Crate

Every detail of the PigEasy Farrowing Crate has been developed for maximum worker convenience and ample sow comfort while working seamlessly with the PigEasy MealMeter System.

Take the quick latch system, for instance. No one wants to lose a drop pin right as the sow enters the farrowing crate. That’s why we developed the “quick latch” with no loose pieces that could end up in the pit. The Quick Latch system stays in place and allows for fast opening and securing of the gates.

No pins also means setting up for wash out is a breeze. When not in use, the PigEasy Sow Feeder can be quickly flipped over and hung upside down on the front frame for quick yet thorough wash out.

Another goal of the PigEasy Farrowing Crate is to have plenty of access to the sow. With the European style side panels and Rump Guard Bars that can be removed even if the sow is laying against them, you’ll have the ability to reach the sow to provide the care she needs.

A farrowing room needs to be quiet. When a sow startles, the likelihood for lay-ons increase. Based on that reasonsing, we developed the PigEasy Farrowing Crate to be rattle-free. If one sow jumps up, the rest of the room doesn’t follow suit. This ensures a safe and quiet environment for both the sow and litter of pigs.

Installing farrowing crates is no small endeavor. With that in mind, we designed the PigEasy Farrowing Crate to be the last crate you’ll have to install. To achieve ultimate longevity yet remain affordable, the crate’s front and back frames are made entirely of stainless steel where corrosion typically occurs and the crate’s sides are made of powder coated mild steel.

The PigEasy Farrowing Crate can be quoted at 7’, 7 ½’, and 8’ lengths with various options. Please call (888) 354-0112 or email info@pigeasy.com for more information.
