Farrowing pen

BoPil has two different farrowing pens for loose sows: "BeFree" and "45":

"BeFree"

A revolutionating pen with multiple functions:

The BeFree farrowing pen has been re-developed and has now even better layout and functions to save work hours. 
The sows behaviour and general health approves both before, during and after farrowing as she is allowed more freedom for natural behaviour and thereby gets better litter results.

  • Appropriate lying bhaviour for the sow in the middle of the pen 
  • The sow can be fixated and released with a one-hand handle
