With the Balance Frame, Nooyen offers a sophisticated system centring on the reduction of piglet mortality caused by sows lying on piglets and the flexible positioning of the sow. As soon as the sow lies down, she activates a switch that lowers the sow slat to the same level as the piglet slat. When the sow gets up again, the sow slat will rise to a safe height.
