During pregnancy, a farmed sow may be kept in a gestation crate, also called a sow stall. A standard crate measures 6.6 feet x 2.0 feet (2 m x 60 cm).
Rather than bedding, sow stalls are floored with slatted plastic, concrete or metal to allow waste to be efficiently collected below. Lagoons are open-air pits in which waste is flushed. Sows are moved to farrowing crates a few days before giving birth, where they lie down and nurse their piglets from an attached crate.
