During farrowing, sows (adult female pigs) give birth to piglets in special rooms designed to provide for the special needs of the animals. These areas typically are separate from other areas of the farm where pigs may be housed and they are rotated to other barns to control the spread of disease. The stalls reduce the number of piglets that are accidentally laid on or stepped on by the sow, temperature control technology allows piglets to stay warm while sows keep cool.
