Abstract When changing over from individual housing to group housing for pregnant sows, the farmer has to decide on a particular group housing system. It is important to choose a system that fits farmer and farm personnel. This report was made to support the pig farmer in this decision. It includes objective information on much-used systems of group housing for pregnant sows and it is aimed at pig farmers who have still to change over to group housing. The report is also intended for those who already apply group housing, but are going to rebuild or build new facilities
