Sows housed in groups: the Quebec experience

December 8, 2014
In the last few months, a team from CDPQ has documented the process of converting eight farrowing houses, that went from gestation crates to managing pregnant sows in groups.

This PPT presentation describes this transition and the results for each farm, according to one of the four sow group management systems: Floor Feeding, Free-access Shoulder Stalls, Electronic Sow Feeding (ESF) or Full-length Feeding Station with Self-locking Trough.
