Wooden Plinth Farrowing Hut

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

As standard our Wood Plinth Farrowing Huts come with:

  • A single corrugated steel roof with any sharp edges softly folded for safety.
  • A front open doorway which is 3’0”(H) x 2’1”(W) and as standard comes with welded ‘angle iron style’ door keeps either side. A 6” step has been designed to encourage very young piglets to remain within the hut and to help reduce levels of straw lost out of the front.
  • A wooden sliding vent on the back wall of the hut for improved ventilation. This can be manually opened or closed depending 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

Plastic Lining

We offer the option of lining the Wood Plinth 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.

18mm Plywood Door

To secure sows inside or outside the Farrowing Hut we offer a simple vertically sliding door made from 18mm plywood. These are cut to fit within the already present brackets on either side of the door frame. The door encourages safe weaning and checking of piglets even when a sow is present. This, however is not operable from inside the hut.

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.
