Iron flooring

Iron flooring

    Usually, the iron floors are used in the farrowing sections with milking sows. Such flooring features the special bottom doors, which, being located in the rear part of the box, are meant for easy manure disposing. The main disadvantage of iron floors is that they are cold.  Moreover, the iron floors pull heat from animals. However, this peculiarity is applied when laying the floors for milking sows. It is necessary to lay this type of flooring to create more comfortable conditions because the body temperature of sow is increased during lactation. However, the area around the iron floor (where the little piglets are staying) is to be laid with plastic panels or the iron together with plastic flooring.
