A design proven and refined over more than 40 years, the semi-circular farrowing ark with a side doorway is the choice of commercial pig producers worldwide. Our Standard Farrowing Ark is built on a tanalised timber subframe using galvanised steel, which requires almost no maintenance and lasts up to 50% longer than conventional painted steel. The Ark can be moved easily using the integral lifting hooks fitted as standard.
A choice of end panels
You can choose to have your Standard Farrowing Arks with end panels made from traditional plywood, or in galvanised steel, which is proven to reflect heat and does not harbour bacteria to the same extent. Whichever format you choose, a 0.3m x 0.3m Sliding Rear Vent is included as standard to allow easy and effective ventilation.
Sizes to suit your system
Our Farrowing Hut range is designed to reflect 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 Farrowing Ark is available in two sizes. The basic model measures 2.54m wide x 1.65m long and 1.15m high, with a 0.6m side doorway. 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 2.30m long, and suitable for higher-parity sows and piglets weaning later.
