At Pig Equipment, we supply superbly engineered products for housing, feeding, watering and managing outdoor pigs at every stage in their development. Our products are designed and built to boost productivity, ensure the highest welfare standards, and maximise your profitability.
Sows and gilts have specific housing needs. Our Sow Hut range gives you a choice to sizes to accommodate animals at different ages and stages, in groups of between four and 12. Correct feeding and watering are also vital to the animals’ welfare, and ensure they’re in peak physical condition as they approach farrowing time.
Although they’re naturally social animals, sows and gilts need solitude when giving birth. Being housed alone at this critical moment is vital for both their physical and mental wellbeing. Our Farrowing Huts are designed to give gilts and sows the optimum amount of space, ensuring they and their litters get off to the best possible start.
This is a critical phase for young pigs. Correct housing and feeding will ensure they gain weight efficiently, so they’re ready to move to the finishing area sooner. Our Weaning Huts and metal hurdle runs are designed to provide the safe, protective environment they need.
The final stage in the pigs’ lives sees them growing from around 80-90lbs (35-40kg) to the slaughter weight and carcase score demanded by the market. The faster and more efficiently they get there, the sooner they’re off the farm – and the more profit you make. Our Finishing products are engineered to meet key welfare and management priorities: shelter from the elements, ad-lib feeding and constant access to clean, fresh water.
