New Weaner House – Pig World

An hour a day – that’s all it takes for the day to day management of a new, state-of-the-art weaner house put up by a Suffolk farmer. The big investment has transformed the growth rate of his piglets, reduced mortality and made the difference between staying in pigs and getting out altogether.
He runs 250-260 sows on his 134ha farm producing porkers and cutters, finishing them at 60-75kg deadweight in straw yards, making use of home-grown grain and straw.
