Heat Pads

Stanfield Pig Heating Pads

Osborne’s Stanfield heat pads are designed to provide supplemental heat to newly born piglets and growing nursery pigs. The very first heat pad to be used in pork production, our pads provide a warm laying area for the animals to rest, keeping them away from sows and preventing crush losses. At full power, Stanfield farrowing mat surface temperature stays uniformly warm, about 30-35° F (16-20° C) above air temperature, while Stanfield nursery mats operate at 20-25° F (11-14° C) above air temperature.

The heat mat’s tough fiberglass-reinforced composite material blocks drafts coming from the pit, is easy to clean, and gives animals solid footing.

How It Works

With UL, CSA, CE, IEC and PSE certifications, our pig heat mat is safe to operate—and they save energy, too. For example, at maximum power, a 1×4-ft. heat pad uses 66% less power than a heat lamp*. Power consumption is even lower with the use of one of our heat pad controllers.

Osborne’s Stanfield heat mats are available in a variety of sizes and wattages.

(* 66% figure refers to calculations from Hydro-Quebec and varies depending on local energy costs.)

"I have a pig sanctuary and have used these mats for 15-20 years. I have NEVER had one problem with the mats. I hang them off the inside wall of the pig houses and allow air space on both sides (heat comes off front and back)."
