Description

Mats in sow houses

Existing floors in farrowing houses are often slippery and hard. Comfort mats made of rubber decisively contribute to the animal’s well-being in sow houses & farrowing pens, as well as to their health! higher lying comfort and better thermal insulation, fewer injuries and animal losses, easy to clean and disinfect.

Existing floors in farrowing houses are often slippery and hard.

  • With fear of slipping sows get up less
    • Decreased feed and water intake
    • increased risk of MMA (mastitis-metritisagalactiae syndrome)
    • rearing performance gets worse
  • Increased crushing losses
  • Lying too long in one position increases the risk of shoulder ulcer formation
    • inflammations and pain lower sow performance

Farrowing rubber mats or confined sows in farrowing pens

Rubber mats in the lying area contribute to sow well-being and health and are decisive in the economic efficiency of sow keeping. lameness is the third most frequent culling reason and affects fertility and performance negatively

Extremity problems like claw and limb diseases, as well as lameness, are increasingly among the reasons for culling sows in group housing. For group housing to function with high performance animals, sow agility and freedom of movement, together with joint and claw health, are the paramount factors. Conventional concrete floors are too hard and abrasive, especially in the lying area.

Consequences:

• lying down and getting up on hard floors takes effort and negatively affects lying behavior
• joint swelling
• joint and wall horn abrasion during lying
• mechanical weakening of the claw
• injuries are entryways for pathogens, on the joints as well as the coronal edge (paronychia)
• severe lameness to some extent
