LIBERTY MODEL

The LIBERTY model cage is designed to improve the well-being of the sow (and therefore of the piglets) during the lactation phase. Our system is very flexible and allows the operator to keep the sow inside the crate body that is closed to protect piglets during the first 48/72 days of delivery. Moreover, the operator can easily open the sides that are hooked, through practical inserts, to the perimeter of the birth place thus creating an area where the sow can move freely.
The sides themselves and other protective devices delimit the area where the sow can move to allow the piglets to always have an escape route to avoid deadly crushing and to prevent the sow from positioning itself in a way that prevents milking.
The cage body, in closed position, can be of two types:
1) LIBERTY-EF1 version: The cage has two adjustments in length (1900 mm and 2100 mm approximately).
2) LIBERTY-EF3 version: The cage has two adjustments in length (1750 mm and 1950 mm approximately).
The place of delivery is then completed with nests for piglets that can be heated by water or electrically, on the floor or by lamps.
The perimeter partitions are made of PVC panels of adequate height and stainless steel posts.
The flooring is designed to ensure a combination of cleanliness and well-being of the sow and piglets, alternating closed parts and slatted parts.

ELEVOTECK SYSTEM

By adopting the technology of ELEVOTECK our company guarantees the total care during the complete permanence in the farrowing room. Through the use of sophisticated mechanism with a sensor, the step of the sow lifts up from those of piglets, by the moment she stands up. On the contrary, when she lays, the level of the sow returns in the normal position at the same level of the piglets. That means, the sow lays down always when the piglets are on a safe level. The collected data on this system by the Universities give us clear ideas about the investment: The mortality of the crushed piglets, reduces up to the 80%, and together with that it reduces the labour costs to supervise it; The result of all is a an immediate and economic return for the farmer.
ELEVOTECK is perfectly integrated with the famous coated Evoteck slat (in the versions in expanded metal and double wire) that is produced by dimension in order to answer to the dimensional needs of the customer.
The union of both produces an avant-garde product for what concerns safety and comfort in the farrowing units.
Moreover, the pneumatic system is in serial connected and centralized, and it is possible to preview a manual control, to make the cleaning and maintenance.
During the automatic control each farrowing unit is independent , and works taking care of the sow behaviour 24 a day. All components have been chosen to guarantee long life and easy maintenance.
There are 3 versions of ELEVOTECK that differ in length: 2050, 2100 and 2200 mm.
