Keep yourpigs comfy

NZ Lifestyle Block - - In The Home Orchard -

PIGS, LIKE most other stock, ben­e­fit from hav­ing shel­ter, a place to have an af­ter­noon snooze out of the hot sum­mer sun or es­cape from cold rain and wind when the weather turns nasty... or just some­where to be a pig!

Ap­ple­tons now builds a range of qual­ity pig hous­ing, from shel­ters through to far­row­ing pens. Its stand-alone shel­ter of­fers ex­cel­lent hous­ing at 1.2m x 2.4m.

All their shel­ters are of tim­ber con­struc­tion with cor­ru­gated iron roof­ing and trim and built-on skids for easy mov­ing around the pad­dock.

If you are look­ing to keep your pigs con­tained and off your pad­docks then the Ap­ple­tons pigsty (2.4m x 3.6m) is a good choice. For ex­pect­ing sows there is the far­row­ing pigsty (4.8m x 2.4m), the most spa­cious sty with added height in the shel­ter, mak­ing it a lovely space that will keep your sow and her piglets warm and dry in all weather.
