Emergency Housing

Preventing pigs from escaping outdoor housing enclosures can be a difficult task. Pigs are strong, agile and can jump over barriers. Keeping them contained however, is extremely important. Due to the site-specificity of production systems and potential solutions producers should consider factors such as cost, sturdiness, longevity and ease of set-up and repair to identify housing solutions suitable for their farms.
