Farrowing Portapig Housing System
From Portapig Housing
Farrowing buildings can be supplied as a single unit to accommodate 6-20 crates. Any building can be further divided into separate rooms. For example an 18 crate building can be divided into 3 rooms with 6 crates in each, or a 20 crate building into 2 rooms with 10 crates in each. Single Farrowing buildings are often placed side by side and can be linked by a forward passage giving the same working environment as a large static building. Portapig Duo Farrowing buildings can be supplied in modules of 24/28/32/36 or 40 crates as one complete building and these can be subdivided into 2 or 3 individual rooms.

This system will automatically open and close the windows when there is a disruption or reconnection in power supply to the house. Added benefit of giving increased ventilation airflow during excessive hot spells during summer.
- Ventilation designed by a cross-flow with air inlets fitted into the gable walls. The inlets are operated by a winch motor and cable and are computer controlled. These inlets will open when the fan speed increases. This gives a greater air volume but maintains a constant air speed.
