Sow Management

Key to any piggery is the combination of farm profitability and animal welfare which, when it comes to sows, is directly related to food, water, space and ventilation management.
The Big Dutchman Sow Management equipment offers farmers a range of solutions for the 3 key phases of sow management.

Phase 1: Pregnant Sow Management

The Big Dutchman group housing provides pregnant sows with a safe, stress free, social environment with managed access to food, plenty of water and ventilation. Our systems are custom designed to your farming philosophy providing a flexible and efficient pregnant sow solution.

Phase 2: Farrowing

Protecting piglets and sows during farrowing is key, not only to animal welfare but also to farm profitability. The Big Dutchman has pioneered comfortable, safe farrowing pens for pregnant sows. These include specially designed farrowing pens that enable farm personal safe access, a heated resting area for the sow and piglet nesting for new born piglet protection.

Phase 3: Piglet Feeding

Protecting piglets and sows during farrowing is key, not only to animal welfare but also to farm profitability. The Big Dutchman has pioneered comfortable, safe farrowing pens for pregnant sows. These include specially designed farrowing pens that enable farm personal safe access, a heated resting area for the sow and piglet nesting for new born piglet protection.

Piglet Rearing

For piglets to be productive a delicate balance of feed, water, ventilation, temperature in a stress-free environment is key. Managing these elements while caring for animal well being is simple with the Big Dutchman Piglet Rearing equipment and includes:
  • Automatic feeders which manage feed portions per piglet
  • Artificial Intelligence visual weight checking which reduces animal stress
  • Automated or manual roughage dispensers
  • Slatted flooring for energetic piglets and increased hygiene
  • Flexible modular housing to enable pen size changes and piglet socialisation
  • Feed mill and feed distributions systems that ensure an even mix of ingredients is distributed to every piglet.

Pig Finishing

After months of work and careful management finding the right combination of nutrients to ensure pigs are the correct weight for slaughter without stressing the whole herd with constant weigh ins is a job for the Big Dutchman. Our pig finishing equipment offers farmers:
  • Artificial Intelligence visual weight detection to reduce animal stress
  • Automated weight sorting of up to 400 individuals, providing farmers with information on underweight, overweight and slaughter ready individuals
  • Several feed system options to deliver the perfect feed solution
  • Hydration systems for increased animal health and wellness
  • Flexible modular housing to enable pen size changes
