Factors to consider when constructing a piggery

PIG FLOW AND BUILDING LAYOUT

The positioning of pens should take into account the flow of production. The finisher pens should be close to the loading bay and the dry sow pens adjacent to the farrowing house so that the distance traveled by pregnant sows to the farrowing house is minimized.
Feed stores should be positioned in such a way that lorries and/or tractors easily access them.
