Our Sow Huts are constructed from fully galvanised, heavy-duty steel to resist corrosion; built on a tanalised timber subframe, they’ll give years of reliable service with minimal maintenance. All Sow Huts are supplied pre-punched for easy assembly using standard tools, reducing time and labour costs.
Standard features include a door 1.0m wide and 1.3m high at one end, with a vent at the other. The doorway has a 15cm threshold with reinforced steps, helping to retain straw bedding and reducing costs. Options include a lift-out door to replace the sliding vent, and a 1.5m wide front doorway for easy bale access.
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.
Sizes to suit your system
The size and number of huts you need depends on your group numbers, and whether you’re housing gilts or adult sows. As a rough guide, you need to allow 1.0m2 per gilt, and 1.5m2 for each adult sow. For adult sows, or bigger numbers, you also need to ensure they have enough volume of space, so our Sow Huts increase in size proportionally.
