    Flat Top Farrowing Huts

    We perfected the design of our Farrowing Hut in the mid 1990s, in collaboration with leading outdoor pig producers in the UK and Europe. More than 20 years on, it’s in use worldwide, and has become the standard by which all others are judged. 

    Every aspects of our Farrowing Hut has been carefully designed with welfare and easy management in mind. The sloped sides provide safe spaces for pigs, reducing the risk of their being crushed. A vent in the back, fitted as standard, permits ventilation and viewing, while the large central doorway makes it easy for you to see inside without having to enter the hut, at a time when sows can become spooky and defensive.

    Flat Top Insulated Steel Farrowing Hut 

    Steel Flat Top Farrowing Huts are supplied fully insulated as standard. As well as retaining vital warmth in winter, this helps sows remain indoors nursing their litters in hot weather, rather than wallowing outside. 

    Flat Top Plywood Farrowing Hut 

    The plywood model has an insulated roof, which reduces condensation in cold weather. This helps to keep bedding dry, ensuring the pigs remain warm and reducing your straw use and costs over the winter. 

    Sizes to suit your system

    Both the Steel and Plywood Flat Top Farrowing Huts are available in two sizes, reflecting the increasing use of individual farrowing paddocks, and farmers’ need for tailored equipment for gilts and higher-parity sows, or systems based on heavier weaning weights.

    The standard model measures 1.9m wide x 2.3m long and 1.11m high. These dimensions have been tried and tested over many years, and are ideal for gilts. Alternatively, you can opt for our larger model, which is 2.2m wide and 2.6m long, and suitable for higher-parity sows and piglets weaning later. 

    Accessories

    We supply a range of accessories for the Flat Top Farrowing Hut to suit your individual system and requirements, including:

    Doors
    Doors allow you to confine sows and their litters during bad weather, separate them before weaning, manage the internal climate more effectively and keep the animals outside while you’re working inside the Hut. We offer a range of doors to suit all sizes of Farrowing Huts.

    – Curtain Door
    A polystrip curtain door helps to retain warmth in winter, and prevents rain and snow from entering the Hut, keeping the bedding drier.

    – Vented Solid Door
    Strong and secure, this galvanised steel door is fitted with a sliding vent to allow air flow.

    – Round Bar Door
    Some producers, particularly in hotter climates, prefer this round bar style door to a solid vented design, as it permits greater ventilation and allows more light into the Hut.

    – Hinged Door
    Hinged at the side, this door is permanently fixed to the Farrowing Hut, helping to avoiding possible loss or damage.

    Lifting Frame
    Replacing the lifting hooks, this heavy box-section frame means you don’t need a lifting beam, and can move the Hut without leaving the tractor cab, or using a lifting beam.
