Welfare will be at the center of attention in the BFL/DLG special “Wellness in farrowing units,” showcased at EuroTier 2012

This will present an opportunity to explore innovations in farrowing housing equipment. In addition to the latest developments in conventional housing, flooring and climate systems, farrowing units with various possibilities of free range for sows will also be presented. A floor area of 540 square meters will showcase various types of housing that allow sows more movement, as well as floor design, feeding equipment and climate control, as well as hygiene and health management of sows and piglets. Also, experts on sow and piglet husbandry will be available to assist visitors and promote the exchange of information.
