Woolpit: Piglet trolley is launched

Quality Equipment has created a new trolley for weaners


A Woolpit-based firm has come up with a new trolley design for transporting piglets

In response to requests from pig farmers, Quality Equipment, which is part of G E Baker Ltd, has produced a purpose-made weaner trolley to hold piglets during such routine tasks as injecting as well as for transporting weaners from the farrowing pens to the grower house.

With sows producing more pigs per litter and farms getting larger, moving and handling weaners can become time-consuming and stressful, the company says.

The trolley — designed and made at the company’s Woolpit manufacturing facility — has two fixed and two swivel wheels for manoeuvrability in tight passages. There is a hinged tailgate-type door at one end for easy unloading.

The sturdy galvanised steel frame is fitted with non-corrosive and hygienic plastic surrounds which are easy to clean, and the firm says it can make different sizes, other than its standard, to order.
