Flooring

Stocking densities for all stages of pigs are becoming a legal constraint on pig production throughout the world. Pig health improves with increased space allowance per pig, but pork output is negatively impacted. Therefore, an acceptable balance between space and production is required. As farms age, flooring and other contact surfaces (walls, doorways, and passages) become eroded, particularly around feeders and water supplies. Poor maintenance routines ultimately result in compromised pig health. Analysis of the floor would also include hygiene. The lack of all-in/all-out routines results in poor or inadequate cleaning routines and maintenance. It is only through good pig flow that sufficient time can be set aside to allow stockpeople to adequately care for the floor.
