How it Works
Osborne’s all new farrowing and gestation stalls are designed to be long-lasting and maximize sow comfort.
Osborne Farrowing Stalls address the two most important economic concerns in livestock management and farrowing: pre-wean mortality and sow appetite. Preferred laying areas for piglets away from the sow are designed to reduce crush losses. A recessed section in the creep area accepts specific sizes of Osborne’s Stanfield® Heat Pads so that they remain flush with the rest of the floor. Sows remain cooler due to the heat pad’s placement, which helps them increase feed intake and produce more milk. The flooring under the sow is comprised of a two-piece, self-supporting cast iron system that provides sows with stability and keeps them from slipping.
Osborne Gestation Stalls enhance sow comfort and allow easier access for farm personnel to perform routine tasks. They feature a walk-through back gate and low back sides. There are no sharp edges and no floor straps for animals to lie on. Vertical rods in the front reduce nose-to-nose contact between animals and horizontal top bars provide greater strength.
All of Osborne’s stalls are powder-coated steel to maximize useful life and minimize installation and maintenance labor.
