Farrowing Huts

Hut size and shape is important for comfort of sows and productivity. Too high and the sow is cold, too low and she is cramped. A large rear vent allows easy temperature control encouraging the sow into the hut in hot conditions and is useful for piglet removal.

All huts are 9′ wide, 42″ high inside and can be 5’6″ or 6′ long. They are all made with our own high quality, heavy duty, corrugated sheet and all sheet is folded to ensure there are no sharp edges and the cladding is vermin proof. The radial door is standard on the insulated roof farrowing hut, situated to one side to give the sow comfort and to enable you to keep the sow in if necessary for safety and ease of operation.

Fenders

Fenders are available with all farrowing huts painted, drop front or galvanised. These fenders will prevent piglets from getting away from the sow in the first two weeks. The fenders come with folded tops thus preventing damage to the sows udder. The lower edge is folded out to allow self cleaning of foul material which helps reduce spread of disease.
