Farrowing Pen

Image ID:

This sow is in a farrowing pen, which makes it easier for the farmer to examine and look after the pregnant sow and her piglets. The pen also allows the piglets to have their own space away from the sow, which can save their lives. It prevents the sow from laying or flopping down too quickly and accidentally crushing her piglets.
