Fast II Alley Design

Barn Retrofit System


Farmweld’s new Fast II Alley Design offers pork producers an affordable design option for retrofitting conventional barns to accommodate scales and automatic sorting system technology. Gating, feeders and watering devices are left in place because there is no food court. The scale is located in the alleyway, where pigs are given free access. One scale is used per 1,000-head barn. Because of pigs’ normal curiosity, they learn to walk through the scale as part of their daily routine. This means minimal time has to be spent training pigs.
