Sow Huts

Designed in collaboration with leading European producers, and proven on farms across America, our Sow Huts provide long-lasting, purpose-built accommodation for your breeding sows and gilts. All our Sow Huts are built from top-quality materials for long life and low maintenance.

Pig Equipment Sow Huts are built on a tough timber subframe. They’re constructed from fully galvanised, heavy-duty steel to resist corrosion and provide many years of reliable service with minimal maintenance. All Sow Huts are supplied pre-punched for ease of assembly, reducing time and labour costs.

Standard features include doors 3’3” wide and 4’3” high at each end, with one door lifting out completely. You can specify a 59” front doorway for easy bale access if required. Doors can be removed in summer for maximum airflow: the back panel can be filled in with a sliding rear vent or hinge-up door if you don’t require access from both ends. Each doorway has a 6” threshold with reinforced steps, helping to retain straw bedding and reducing costs. Lifting Hooks are also included as standard.

Our Sow Huts are available in a range of sizes.
The size and number of huts you need depends on your group numbers, and whether you’re housing gilts or adult sows. The calculation is based on floor area per animal: as a rough guide, you need to allow 11 square feet (1.0m2) per gilt, and 16 square feet (1.5m2) for each adult sow.

When you’re housing adult sows or bigger numbers, you also need to ensure they have enough volume of space, too. So, our Sow Huts increase in size proportionally as you progress up the range. Our smaller Sow Huts (7’6”and 8’7” wide) are 4’ and 4’8” high respectively, while our larger Huts (10’ feet wide) are 5’6” high.

Hut Accessories

Lifting Beam
A simple galvanized beam that enables you to lift the Hut using the integral lifting hooks. Available in a range of sizes to match your Hut length.

Lifting Frame
This heavy box-section frame with an internal ridge timber allows you to move the Hut without leaving the tractor cab, or using a lifting beam. An ideal solution if you’re moving the Sow Hut frequently.

Lift-out Back Door
Fitted as a replacement for the standard sliding rear vent, this lift-out back door can be removed completely to provide maximum airflow in summer.

Insulated Roof
Available on all Sow Huts, this option is recommended if your farm experiences temperature extremes. The insulation material is completely sealed within a double-skin roof, so it’s completely safe, watertight and vermin-proof, and is effective at temperatures ranging from +104 to -40F.
