      The grasscutters are kept in pens inside the rearing shed. The number of
      pens depends on the production objectives. It is recommended to have one
      breeding female per pen. The recommended surface area per adult animal
      in the pen is 0.2 m2.
      one possible setup could include:
      • A pen for fattening young grasscutters;
      • A pen for adults;
      • A pen for mating;
      • A pen for giving birth and feeding the young.
      The layout of the pens depends on the type of material used in their
      construction. Metal pens can be moved around, whereas brick pens will
      be fixed.
      It is not recommended to use materials such as straw, bamboo, wood or
      matting because they can be eaten away by the grasscutters. The pens
      can be open or closed, whichever the producer prefers. There should be
      room to move around between the pens
