Moving Floor Pig Equipment

 

Do you know that generally 7 times more water is used for cleaning for the pigs than what the pigs actually drink themselves? Moving Floor Pig equipment is cleaned 10-15 times/day without using any water at all. This continous cleaning helps reducing the ammonia emissions by 95%. The solid floor is soft but has a resistant surface that spares the pigs’ knees and hooves. Healthy animals grow better and need less antibiotics. With Moving Floor pig equipment you can also build the barns to a lower cost than conventional barns with slatted floors.
