What are slats?

This is the type of flooring used on pig farms. It is a flooring system characterized by holes that allow animal feces and urine to fall directly into the slurry pit. Slats keep the animals clean and dry and reduce heat loss through contact with the floor surface.


Slats should provide comfort, with the necessary grip in order to prevent surfaces from becoming slippery and compromising animal welfare.


What characteristics should I look for in slats?

Flooring for pigs must meet several requirements to ensure animal welfare on the farm. The main characteristics being that the floor should not be slippery, nor have sharp edges or areas to prevent injuries to the animals. It is important that the slats have appropriate holes according to the size of the animals.


The design of the slat must be appropriate for the weight of the pigs, so we must choose the slats according to the size of the animal. This adaptation is essential to prevent harm to the animals, as well as to avoid premature warping of the installations.

 

Types of slats for pigs

Before purchasing slats, we must be aware of the major types of slats available on the market, in terms of both the material of which they are made and the percent surface area the holes account for in the slats.

 

Plastic slats

Plastic slats are usually used on pig farms that have farrowing rooms and nursery piglets.

 

Cast-iron slats

Slats made of cast iron are suitable in barns with sows in farrowing rooms.


Concrete slats: 

Slats made of concrete are mainly used in finishing pig barns due to the heavy weight they must support.


Solid slats or slats with a low % of openings.

These solid slats have several applications:

  • They provide resting surfaces for both sows in farrowing and piglets in the farrowing room and nursery stages. They provide an ideal resting surface for sows, minimizing shoulder ulcer problems and teat damage.

  • They facilitate the thermal insulation of the animals, as well as protect them against air currents and gases coming from the pits. These slats are ideal for installation under radiant heat sources, as they will prevent temperature losses.

How are slats installed?

The installation of slats on farms must be carried out by personnel with the required knowledge to ensure good results, both for the animals and for the durability and quality of the installation.


Aspects such as the supports and profiles to be used for its installation, as well as the side finishings should be considered, in addition to incorporating the fixtures of the elements to be installed on its surface, whether they be feeders, crates, panels or any other element that needs to be fixed.
