High quality, well designed farrowing crates helped to establish the reputation of Quality Equipment. Today, we offer a choice of three designs, plus the revolutionary Balance Floor Farrowing System. All are hot-dip galvanised for long life.
As we make these crates ourselves we can adapt them according to individual requirements and farrowing pen dimensions. The Floating Rail and QE Royal crates have adjustable fronts to accommodate sows of different sizes.
We can supply black polypropylene or stainless steel troughs. The pen fronts can be adapted for automatic feeding to work with different types of feed dispenser. Many pig farmers now like to feed highly productive sows several times a day according to condition.
Floating Rail Crate
The lower rail on this crate moves when the sow gets up and down. It is particularly useful for larger sows.
Fitted with downward facing prongs on the lower rail to provide control without interfering when piglets suckle.
Side Opening Crate
Specifically designed for use in the welfare friendly ‘Freedom’ farrowing pen.
