Creep slat sections are non-porous – meaning bacteria cannot live in galvanized steel and does not hold disease. The dimpled steel tri-bar creep surface design creates extra traction for the little pigs to easily get up and down. Raised end supports allow for better cleaning into the pit area.
The tri-bar steel is mig welded, which is 4 times stronger than resistance welding and is built to withstand the constant movement and heavy weight of pigs. Resistance welding is known to have breakage in the welding points within a few years. The tri-bar creep area can be made in various sizes to create the desired size floor you need.
ValuCast cast iron floor tabs easily drop into place, combining the cast and tri-bar floors. The cast iron will lay on top and easily interlock into the creep panels, ensuring all parts stay together and won’t separate or spread. ValuCast cast iron is cool under the sow in warm farrowing rooms and its high / low design provides excellent traction and stability for the sow – minimizing possible teat and foot damage, slipping, or other injuries.
Since cast iron surface is preferred by sows and the creep area is preferred by the little pig, pigs tend to spend most of their time on the warmer surface, thus resulting in fewer crush deaths. Producers have reported they save at least one pig per litter from a crush death with combination cast / creep floors, making it a very cost effective option.
