Factors to consider when constructing a piggery

WALLS

Walls should be strong so that the pigs are contained within the pen. A 115 mm wall is strong enough provided the mortar used is of the right mix of cement and pit sand. In enclosed buildings, like the farrowing house, provision of flaps is essential as these can be opened when it’s hot and closed to contain warmth when it’s cold.
