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.
1. The floor gets dirty by manure and urine
2. In programmed intervals the floor rotates and the manure and urine is scraped off in the front
Moving Floor Pig can simplify the construction and reduce the building cost
