The platform’s cast center is raised 1′ (26 mm), giving piglets access to the sow’s teats to nurse easily, yet encourages piglets to move to the safety of the creep area.

Only two sections of cast are required per crate. This means the sow always has weight on the cast and cannot work a section out of place. German or Ductile Cast options are available for placement underneath the sow. Stainless steel offers strength and durability. Stainless steel j-bolts secure the center platform in place and provide extended durability. Stainless steel beam spacer/crate hold down bars distributes the sow’s weight across the cast iron center and ties the entire system together.
Platform lengths available: 7′ (2.13 m), 7′ 6″ (2.29 m) or 8′ (2.44 m)
Fiberbeams span up to 8′ (2.44 m) in farrowing applications.
