EASYFIX have designed a unique & innovative range of pig toys that are now used and sold across the Globe. We have specifically designed toys for Piglets, Weaners, Sows and Finishers. Made with natural high-quality rubber, the toys are pliable, durable and safe for pigs to bite on. Our environmental enrichment range are specifically designed to improve pigs living conditions, by encouraging the demonstration of a wider range of natural pig behaviours. Our enrichment toys have also proved successful for both veal and dairy calves.

Enrichment Toys for Pigs

EASYFIX have designed a unique & innovative range of pig toys that are now used and sold across the Globe. We have specifically designed toys for Piglets, Weaners, Sows and Finishers. Made with natural high-quality rubber, the toys are pliable, durable and safe for pigs to bite on.

EU legislation insists that pigs must have permanent access to sufficient quantity of material in order to enable proper investigation and manipulation activities. Our environmental enrichment range are specifically designed to improve pigs living conditions, by encouraging the demonstration of a wider range of natural pig behaviours.

Benefits of Pig Enrichment Toys

Pigs are naturally curious and social animals, who are highly motivated to explore their environment as they would do in their natural habitat. Benefits of our pig toys include:

  • Reduces the frequency of aggressive behaviour (tai, biting, ear biting etc.)
  • Increases the pig’s ability to deal with challenges in a more natural way
  • Broaden the range of behaviours expressed
  • Improve production performance (Feed intake, average daily gain, feed conversion ratio)
  • Reduce stress

Environmental Enrichment for Calves

Our EASYFIX Astro 200 environmental enrichment toy can also be used as a form of environmental enrichment for Calves.

CowSignals® master trainer Wolfgang Müller recommends the use of environmental enrichment for calves in order to prevent boredom and prevent cross-sulking & inter-suckling which can have damaging effects such as udder damage, mastitis, and milk loss.

One of the main benefits of the toy is digestion. As the calf sucks the Astro 200, the oesophageal grove muscle is developed which assists in the passage of food directly to the abomasum where it is digested efficiently.

  • I have been using EASYFIX Luna 117 Enrichment Devices for two years. They are doing a great job and keep my weaners occupied whilst reducing greatly the incidence of tail and ear biting . My farm manager, Finbar Higgins, notices this on a daily basis. I have the Luna 50 on order for my piglets, Luna 86 for weaners, Luna 142 and Astra 200 for sows . I look forward to the introduction of EASYFIX Enrichment Devices to cover all stages in my piggery.

  • Pigs interact with the EASYFIX LUNA up to 80% of the time. The combination of mobility and rollability retains the pig’s interest and motivates other pigs to join in.

  • I have been using the EASYFIX Astro 200 with my sow and fatteners for two years and find it excellent. They play with it and it acts as a constant source of distraction. I also use the Luna 117 for all stages and find it very good. Having different sizes of enrichment devices for different age groups is an excellent idea and I will be using the Luna 50, 86 and 142 in future.
