FIRST CARE® Rubber heat mat
For use during farrowing - the best start for newborn piglets

FIRST CARE is a heat mat, which is placed behind a sow during the farrowing, so the piglets are born to a mat that is approx. 39°C warm. With the heat mat, the newborn piglets get more optimal life start, as the risk of undercooling is reduced.

It is expected that the survival rate for newborn piglets will increase by 0,2 piglets per litter (based on the first statistical experience). After farrowing, remove the FIRST CARE mat.

It is expected that the survival rate for newborn piglets will increase by 0,2 piglets per litter (based on the first statistical experience). After farrowing, remove the FIRST CARE mat.

GREATER SURVIVAL CHANCES
Without the First-Care mat, the very first bedding for the newborn piglets is down to about 11°C.
With the First-Care mat it is approx. 36-38°C, and can be adjusted up to 45°C. The piglets get a more gentle start to life, thus having greater survival chances.
