Portable Pig Shelter
Portable pig shelters can be made on the farm. Here is a picture of a
hoop shelter being built on our farm. It is complete except for the tarp
This shelter is built from common materials and goes together easily.
2- cattle panels cut down to 12'
2- 4'x8' sheets of untreated plywood
4- 8'x4"x6" treated posts
4- 1"x3" untreated boards
1- 10'x12' tarp
Misc: Screws, Lag bolts, plumbers tape, and fence staples.
These shelters are perfect for pasture raised pigs. They can be
moved along with the pigs when rotationally grazed.
We have used these hoop shelters with great success during the
winter. With a thick layer of straw the pigs will make themselves a
nice warm bed.

Update- these huts work fantastic right up until sows start to nest. I
suggest protecting the bottoms of the tarp with a sheet of tin. Our
sows love to rip the tarp off to add to their nest, even with bales of
