Video response to question from email: farrowing stall size

I got a question from email regarding the farrowing stall size I use; 6'x9' - here's a video showing a sow and 5 piglets in a stall that size.  As you can see she's got plenty of space to move around; she'll be there with her piglets for 3 weeks (these piglets are about a week old, so two more weeks) and then she'll be put in group housing with other sows and pigs about the same age.

This is the same sort of farrowing pen that I was describing the construction of here.

When her pigets are weaned she'll be returned to the main herd.
