Our Farrowing Hut Design
Our farrowing hut turned out pretty cool and we didn’t loose any more babies. It has an area in the back that only the babies can fit in so that they can get away from mom ( shown in the picture). This area has a lid that lifts up for easy access to the babies. So when it comes time to castrate the little boys,we can grab them out without any danger of our sow injuring any of the other babies, or us. Unfortunately, we didn’t make plans for this and we only made one so we won’t be able to offer a copy. But if you have any questions about the construction, you can contact us at any time.
The below pictures will give you a general idea of how we built our farrowing hut.
The cost was about $200.00, but the savings and lack of deaths made it well worth it.
