I have been meaning to build a farrowing crate for about six months now, but it turns out my boar has been sterile. We got a new boar so the clock is ticking. I built this farrowing crate in about an hour.
I got the idea from a colleague at work and then did an online search, which brought up this article.
The tyre came from a Kindy – that’s why it’s painted pink and purple.
I followed the advice in the article from the Farm Show magazine.
Pretty easy to cut the sidewalls.
Not so easy to cut through the treads.
All set for a mum and her bubs
