The farm’s manager Ralf Remmert has turned one of his barns into a model and a best practice by rethinking conventional pig farming, and setting the grounds for the so-called “Neudorf Concept”. The key principles of this concept are freedom of movement and structure. In practice, a barn allows the pigs to move within different areas for different activities (resting, feeding, rooting and defecation). In the dropping area, a so-called "pig toilet" separates the urine from the droppings via a conveyor belt. The piglets learn how to use the pig toilet early on from the sow.
