Farrowing House and Pen

   

Our Farrowing House is a natural for controlling disease because there is no substitute for sunshine and fresh air. Made of dependable plywood, on slatted floors on oak runners. This is the most economical way to farrow. Great for organic, beginning producers, 4H/FFA, overflow and more.
