Half Wood Farrowing Hut

The John Harvey Half Wood Uninsulated Huts are available at 9’0” wide, with an internal height of 3’6”.

As standard our Half Wood Uninsulated Farrowing Huts come with:

  • A single skin quality Z350 heavy duty corrugated steel roof with any sharp edges softly folded for safety.
  • A front open doorway which is 3’0” (H) x 2’0” (W). A 5” step designed to encourage very young piglets to remain within the hut and to help reduce levels of straw lost out of the door.
  • A wooden sliding vent on the back of the hut for improved ventilation. This can be manually opened or closed depending on weather conditions.

The lengths we offer 9’0” wide Half Wood Farrowing Huts in are as follows:

  • 5’6”
  • 6’0”
  • 6’6”
  • 7’0”

The 6’6” and 7’0” size Huts are becoming increasingly popular due to growing litter numbers.

In order to create a product tailored to your individual needs we provide variations on our standard equipment. These options are detailed below.

Additional Options

High Step

It is possible to increase the size of the step on the Half Wood Farrowing Huts doorway to 7” – the extra 2” ensures young piglets remain within the hut until they have reached an adequate age and/or size.

Plastic Lining

We offer the option of lining the Half Wood Farrowing Hut roof with a 6mm, smooth, heavy duty, UV resistant and antibacterial black plastic. The lining has been introduced to better regulate the internal temperature and reduce condensation within the Farrowing Hut, providing a more comfortable environment for the growing pigs and preventing condensation dripping from the roof thus reducing the volumes of straw used. The price of this option includes the cost of having the liner fitted to the inside of the hut if having assembly. This will not be fitted if the Hut is required in kit form.

Square Lifting Loop

To encourage safe and efficient lifting we offer kit-form Square Lifting Loops made from heavy duty steel bar and folded steel.

Bolt on Lifting Loop

We can supply 5mm Bolt on Lifting Loops as a more cost-effective alternative to Square Lifting Loops. These are only suitable for chain and/or hook lifting thus requiring additional labour.

Lifting Bar

Alternatively we can supply a roof bar which is suitable for use with forklift tines. Stretching the full length of the hut, it is made from tube and can be painted or galvanised.
