The Pig Barn of the future

Listen to Paul Hughes as he shows the outcomes of his visit to the Big Dutchman Concept study site in Germany. This long-term study is investigating alternative farming systems for pig production to address animal welfare and environmental concerns in Europe. The concept is to enable free movement of sows at all stages of production and the early group housing of piglets. Paul walks you through the system as it has been modified from the initial concept to its current operation and the future concepts to be investigated. To listen to Paul, click here.
