Port a hut

Step one in our future pig breeding program! We spent the day traveling to New Hampshire to acquire our first port a hut. These simple metal structures will serve as shelters for our pigs instead of a permanent barn. Today’s purchase was a 8’*14′ structure on skids. It will be used for feeder pigs. Keenann has her sites set on breeding Large Black hogs, the plan is to acquire a boar and several gilts. We will also cross the Large Black with Tamworth/Berkshire mixes. Once the breeding program is up in going we will use port a hut farrowing huts for the sows. Eric is trying to visualize how to use a port a hut as an eggmobile for pastured egg production. More on these projects to follow.
