The Portapig Rescue House gives you the flexibility of side tracking your smaller piglets at weaning to give them the high quality feed and care which enables them to re-join the weaning batches at a heavier weight. This can dramatically reduce your weaner mortality and reduce the number of days these smaller piglets take to achieve slaughter weight. Recent improvements in milk replacements and high performance creeps has allowed piglets to be raised away from the sow from day 3 or 4. The ventilation systems within the Portapig Rescue House has been designed with young and vulnerable piglets in mind.
Results have shown great performance in the piglets that have been put in the Portapig Rescue House. Piglets enter the house at 4 kg and over the space of two weeks gain around 5 kg. They can re-join the main weaner groups at around 9 to 10 kg in weight. Farms which use the Portapig Rescue House can expect their mortality rates of piglets to be reduced by up to 60-70%, increasing the productivity of these farms.
The Portapig Rescue Houses can be built as a single or double unit up to 27m in length, to suit your farm’s requirement. The houses are available with a wide range of feeders and can be fully customised to meet your requirements.
Finrone Systems Ltd Modular option allows Portapig buildings to be easily connected under one roof by creating a multi-access passage.
Internal passages are created with hygienic white internal walls and jointing panels, creating a pleasant allweather working environment for staff whilst allowing easy management of pigs.
The central passage can be created by joining the portable buildings end to end with a 2 - 4 metre gap as required. Modular builds also allow flexible future expansion, finished using high quality and professional materials which have already been tried and tested in our established range of Portapig buildings.
One option is shown in the diagram below. The diagram illustrates the farrowing and nursery combined, making the movement of pig and weaners very easy. The passage roof can include skylights providing more natural light, or a range of artificial light can be installed including low energy LED options. Finrone Systems Ltd can provide other bespoke flexible modular options ensuring your building meets your individual requirements.
