In normal production, the main reason for the death of suckling piglets is that they are crushed to death by the sows, which account for 28%-80%, and the situation of different farms is different.

The death of most piglets occurs within 7 days of age (especially within 3 days of age), accounting for about 70%. At this stage, the piglets are still young, the sows are consumed after childbirth, the sensation is very large, and the movement is not flexible. High-risk period.

Preventing the occurrence of pressing or detecting timely ambulance is the main way to reduce death. In recent years, many new farms have adopted special design of the production bed to minimize the death loss of piglets. However, there is no anti-pressure design in the early pig farms, mainly relying on sending people to strengthen inspections.

The effect will vary from person to person. Most are not ideal. Let's share a production bed anti-pressure bar.

The pressure-proof lever (pictured above) is installed in the middle of both sides of the sow bed, and the sow is lying in the area where it can move up and down.

The maximum angle of upward movement can be parallel to the fences on both sides, and the maximum angle of downward movement can be perpendicular or downward to the side fences, but not parallel to the rails on both sides.

When the sow gets up, the pressure bar is easily arched; when lying down, the sow can't lie directly on the bed, need to arch the pressure bar, gradually lie down, and suddenly stand or lie down on the sow. Buffering, which gives piglets the opportunity and time to escape, can well reduce the crushing of suckling piglets.

Xiao Bian believes that qualified farms can purchase a production line with a pressure-proof rod or install a pressure-proof rod on the production bed to reduce the crushing of the suckling piglets.
