Enhanced Welfare Products
Pigs are intelligent and therefore need to be occupied! Sows kept in groups, piglets in the nursery barn, and pigs during the finishing stages have to drink, feed and rest – but they also need to be occupied and can find diversion in enhanced welfare products.
The Rally Rooter or “Düsser Wühlturm” (as it was called by its German engineers) is an enrichment device for pigs of all ages that can be placed inside large pens of finishers or sows. The animals are able to rally around and play with the loosely supported tube so as to root out forage particles placed inside the tube container. This enables them to carry out natural behavior.
