Weaner Hut

Our Weaner Huts are 8’6” wide with an internal height of 5’0” in a range of lengths as listed below.

As standard our Weaner Huts come with:

  • A front doorway at 5’0”(W) x 4’1”(H) with 5” step. This large doorway allows room for round or mini Heston straw bales ensuring efficient bedding down. The 5”step is designed to allow easy access for the young pigs whilst limiting straw loss from the front of the hut.
  • A rear 5’0”(W) hinged top half panel to allow for easy access to the feeder (see photo below). This panel can be secured in the open position with the use of a chain (5 x 21mm @ 1350mm) and standard chain-bracket, shackle and dog clip. This reduces time when feeding and checking the young pigs.
  • Holes on the front designed to attach hurdle brackets.
  • Lifting Brackets or Frame for quick, safe and efficient lifting.

In order to create a product tailored to your individual needs we provide variations on our standard equipment. These options are detailed below.

Additional Options

Plastic Lining

Lining the Weaner Hut roof with a 6mm, smooth, heavy duty, UV resistant and antibacterial black plastic. The lining has been introduced to better regulate the internal temperature of the Weaner Hut providing a more comfortable environment for growing pigs and a reduction in volumes of straw used as it prevents condensation dripping on to the straw. The price of this option includes the cost of having the liner fitted to the inside of the hut. This will not be fitted if the Hut is required in kit form.

Feeder Back

A 10-space plastic feeder with step for easy reaching can be supplied. The feeder is 7’6”(L) and 2’0”(H). It has been designed to fit at the rear of the Hut, under the ½ hinged top panel for simple filling. The Feeder comes with a lid and its height is easily adjustable using anti-luce fasteners.

Hurdles

Brackets – Bolt-on hurdle brackets are available to create an outside run area at the front of the Weaner Hut. These are bolted to pre-drilled holes in the hut front. Brackets enable huts to be joined in a group with one hurdle run for the group.

Standard Hurdles (for outside run) – Depending on your requirements we can supply varying height, plastic clad, painted or galvanised Hurdles.

Drinker Hurdles (for outside run) – These can be either low or standard height as above but are only available with plastic cladding. These feature pre-cut slots to adjust the height of the drinker.

Hurdle Pins – To join and secure hurdles we supply 12 or 16mm pins.

Nipple Bar Troughs – Alternatively we can supply Nipple Bar with Trough for fitting to our Drinker Hurdles within the Weaner Hut outside run. Our regular hurdle size Bar/Trough comes with 8 off Vertical Nipples (½” x ½”), 500mm upright stainless steel pipe, antifrost tubing, bung and bend.

Channel Drinker Trough

Available at 6” (pigs up to 40Kg) or 10” (Fattening) wide. These have a total length of 7’6” and come with an end float, sloped ends for easy cleaning, stainless steel upright pipe and bend. As with our Nipple Bars/Troughs, Channel Drinkers are designed to fit our Drinker hurdles within a Weaner Hut’s outside run – therefore we can supply T-bars & anti-luce pins, wall brackets with T-bar only and height adjustment kits.

Curtain Rail

We can supply curtain rails with anti-luce fixing systems to reduce drafts while keeping an accessible doorway. If curtains are already owned, steel work only can be supplied. This curtain material is as used in factory doorways allowing forklift access.
