These beauties came about due to one doting lady pig farmer wanting to sit with her girls and feel safe! The walkway between the two pens can be accessed from the lane side (or rear) and is wide enough for a chair. It also serves as a great viewing area to keep an eye on newborns, mums and makes restrawing the huts a breeze. Each pen has a creep gate in the back to help piglets avoid being squashed The gate can be pinned open if not required & is strong enough to contain a sow if health procedures need to be performed Removable fenders are included to fit on to the sow entry doors (paddock side) The huts have an insulated roof and are designed for upper ventilation Overhanging eaves on all 4 sides assist with shading & run-off Floorspace in each pen is 6m2 (ample for one sow & piglets, or can house 3 or 4 dry sows) Sleds 3m apart and are universal allowing it to be towed in either direction. One hut can be pulled with a 4wd utility. Farrowing whiteboards included to record progress notes for each sow ...and if that isnt enough...the rail is wide enough to sit your cuppa on!
These huts really are top of the line of farrowing huts ... (or over the top depending if you are the lady farmer or the builder!)
If you have a small number of sows, these are good value. They can double as general housing (with gate pinned open), then also be used during farrowing.
