DETAILS

The 4872 4 x 6 ft wean to finish pig mats unique design allows the pig to lay on the elevated surface to stay warm and dry while avoiding diseases. The 1-1/4 in raised feed lip keeps feed on the mat, preventing it from passing through the slats. Made of high density polyethylene, the mat is non-conductive and acts as a barrier between the pig and the cold floor. Pigs that are cold and chilled use the feed they eat to keep warm because they do not have any fat. Consequently, they do not gain weight. The double L 4872 4 x 6 ft wean to finish pig mat will help the pigs to stay warm, dry and healthy. This, in turn, can reduce the amount of days on the finishing floor. Thermal Comfort for Little Pigs in Cold Wean-to-Finish Barn Tests conducted by Double L show that producers using the 4' x 6' Wean-to-Finish Pig Mat can use 36% less energy to maintain the pig's body temperature (105 degrees) versus a pig lying on a concrete floor. Two boxes, 12" x 12" x 12" high, were made using 1 1/2" thick insulation board, leaving the top and bottom of the box open. Lined with 3 mil plastic and filled with water, two identical heating probes were used to heat the water to 105 degrees. One box was placed on a concrete floor and the other box was placed on the 4' x 6' Welcome Hog Mat on a concrete floor. When temperature of water reached 105 degrees, the usage of kilowatts to maintain temperature in two boxes was documented during the winter months. In a 17-hour span, the box on the plastic mat used 1.15 KwH while box directly on the concrete used 1.8 KwH. Results showed that a pig lying on the 4' x 6' Wean-to-Finish Hog Mat used 36% less energy to maintain its body temperature (105 degrees F) when compared to a pig lying on the concrete floor.
