Producers’ Choice winner — FarrPro Haven
Conventional methods of warming piglets in the creep area relied on heat lamps (left) which lead to piglets piling on top of each other and near the sow, increasing crush risk. The Haven (right) exposes piglets to ample, evenly distributed heat. Pigs use the entire area of non-heated mat with little piling and safely away from the crush zone.
National Hog Farmer readers like this concept so much that through online voting they chose the FarrPro Haven as winner of this year’s Producers’ Choice award.
“It’s an incredible honor to be chosen by the readership of National Hog Farmer for the Producers’ Choice Award,” FarrPro co-founder and CEO Amos Petersen says. “For us it is a validation of the philosophy that has driven development of this product from Day 1: Listen closely to what producers want and find a way to give it to them.”
