Pens for smaller livestock
Pens for smaller livestock

Within the animal metabolism facility there is a large section housing a total of 48 individual pens. The pens each measure 1.8m by 2m and are designed to house smaller livestock such as pigs, goats, sheep and calves. The 48 pens are situated in 4 rows and can be modified and customised in order to provide solutions to meet the requirements of each researcher.
 

Each of the four rows of pens is connected to a large flush tank designed to release varying volumes of water which washes away the waste using gravity, as the pens are on a decline from the tanks. This reduces the build-up of ammonia and significantly decreases the amount of time required to clean the area each day. This process can be fully automated and set to a custom programmed frequency to significantly reduce labour input.
 

Scales and metabolism crates are available and can be custom modified according to the requirements of the experiment.
