Porky's nibbling pipe
Nibbling Pipe for organic activity materials.
This holder made of aluminium or stainless steel provides piglets, fattening pigs and sows with permanent access to activity material or roughage. This satisfies the biting and chewing instinct of the animals and minimises unwanted tail or ear biting. In addition, depending on the pellet, the pigs can be provided in this way with roughage or organic employment material.
The Nibbling Pipes can be filled with roof battens and with different pressed pellets or nibble sticks. They have a stop at the bottom to prevent them from slipping through. The animals can nibble and bite at will on the wood or the pressed nibbling sticks through the opening.
The Nibbling Pipe is available in different types.
The Nibbling Pipe MIDI is made of aluminium and stainless steel, the nibble area is height adjustable from 3.5 to 8.5 cm.
The Nibbling Pipe FLEXI is made completely of solid stainless steel and the opening for nibbling can be easily adjusted in height between 2 and 10 cm by means of an external adjusting device. This provides variable 8 cm and thus the total length of the tube can be between 35.5 and 43.5 cm. The nibble opening has a cm graduation grid at the side that shows the dimension of the opening. That is good if you want to set all the nibbling tubes in your stables to the same size.
Optionally, the scope of delivery includes appropriate mounting material for installation on PVC panels when placed at the bottom or the tubular pen construction further up. On request, this set can also be supplied suitable for installation on other partitions walls.
It fits in any stable.
