The animals will have more freedom of movement with just one touch

The legal amendments for sow managements have led to stormy discussions about the wellbeing of animals. Amongst others, one of the topics was concerned with more space to enable more freedom of movement for sows in farrowing pens. In some countries, like for example in Austria, farmers will in future even be obliged by law in this respect.

In order to provide a solution to this, WEDA Dammann & Westerkamp from Lutten have developed an easy to operate freedom-of-movement and motion pen for sows. This ergonomic version of the full-service providers for pig managements combines proven standard elements with a new locking mechanism into a user-friendly result.

The operators will be able to open and lock the side-wall of the sow’s pen with only one hand without requiring great effort or complicating installation procedures. This way, the animals will have more freedom of movement with just one touch. The door flap construction is free from wear and tear so that no costs occur due to the procuring of replacement parts or service activities. Regardless of different floors and unit sizes, - the WEDA system is universally applicable.

For more than 70 years, WEDA’s name stands for innovation and reliability. Originally founded as an enterprise for the manufacture of wood gas generators, Dammann & Westerkamp GmbH (WEDA) have meanwhile become global market leaders in the domain of liquid feeding with more than 130 members of staff at their headquarters at Lutten. The WEDA company owns locations in almost 50 countries on all continents.

In their function as full providers in the field of modern pig managements, WEDA – besides the domains of feeding technology and house equipment – also attend upon the segments of ventilation technology and liquid manure treatment. WEDA possess more than two dozens of patents.

In 1996 – as the first enterprise of the branch – WEDA received the certification according to the international quality standards, DIN EN ISO 9000 ff. In 2001, the companies of WEDA and of Erich Stallkamp ESTA GmbH founded the WELTEC BIOPOWER GmbH enterprise.
