Q: What is a Creep Fender for and do I need one?

The Creep Fender is positioned in front of the Farrowing Ark usually within 12-24 hours after the Sow has farrowed acting as a type of verander for small pigs, meaning they can get out of the ark without wandering off when very small.

The Fender stays on the Farrowing Ark until the first pig is strong enough to climb over the Fender which is generally within 10-14 days of farrowing.  The Fender is then removed or can be moved to another Farrowing Ark.  Every commercial Farrowing Ark has a Fender and we would advise you to use one also.
