Farms for Sows are complex installations, needing independent and adapted spacing at every stage of the breeding process. This diversity of needs can be solved by a variety of equipment solutions offered by Exafan, all flexible enough to suite the spaces they are installed in. Of just as much importance, is the preparation and constant monitoring of the bio-security control. The work force in charge of managing these facilities should also consider options and work with Exafan to reduce the risks whenever entering these areas. The areas that usually make up sow farms are as follows: gestation, confirmed gestation, farrowing, weaning and quarantine.

Usually sows are housed in groups, although this will depend on the regulations in force in each country, so we can also find stabling in boxes or individual crates; the floors are usually totally or partially slatted and the ventilation, dynamic or static depending on the number of animals in the building. Depending on the construction area, heating systems and cooling systems are additional considerations.
