Do you know that generally 7 times more water is used for cleaning for the pigs than what the pigs actually drink themselves? Moving Floor Pig equipment is cleaned 10-15 times/day without using any water at all. Healthy animals grow better and need less antibiotics.
This continous cleaning helps reducing the ammonia emissions by 85%.
With Moving Floor pig equipment you can also build barns to a competitive price given the simplified ground works.

Ongoing Research Project
Moving Floor is at the forefront when it comes to a more efficient and modern pig barn without compromise.
European Agricultural Fund
Funding through EIP enables an ongoing development project of Moving Floors' concept of automatic cleaning for pigs. In the project, separate departments on a commercial farm will be set up with self-cleaning floors. A number of pigs stay on the floors and studies are done. The project concerns a conceptualisation of automatic cleaning for pigs.
Another project is part-financed by the Swedish Energy Agency, and it is a project with the combination of automatic cleaning and compost in order to create a closed manure management system. A feasibility study must be carried out and then the plant with automatic cleaning must be provided with drum composting. The project will lead to new knowledge about dimensioning and use of compost from manure from Moving Floor.
