Effect of flooring design on limb health, weight growth, and feed consumption of early-weaned piglets caged in groups without litter. I. Effects on limb health



Monatshefte fur Veterinarmedizin 28(Heft 16): 608-611



A total of 720 pigs aged 30-90 days were placed for 53 days in battery cages with four different types of flooring-smooth PVC boards 35 mm wide and 10 mm apart; polyethylene boards, with indented diamond pattern, 60 mm wide and 10 mm apart; hard rubber boards, with corrugated surface, 40 mm wide and 10 mm apart; and a galvanized iron floor containing perforations measuring 14X40 mm. Slipping of the feet was most frequent on PVC, followed by polyethylene, rubber and metal.
