There are certainly many benefits to using hooped structures as pig shelters compared to the conventional pig shelters. They do not only provide a great alternative to hog raisers who are working on a limited capital, but they also help to save on the expenses in the long run because of the lesser need for lighting and ventilation utilities. Though there are disadvantages to using hooped structures, one will see that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
Hooped structures are not only being used as pig shelters, since they can be used for sheltering other types of livestock and poultry as well. They can even be used to house farm equipment if you should decide to stop raising pigs, and along that line, they can easily be taken down just as easily as they were put up, making them a very versatile shelter option.
To ensure that you have a pig shelter that can withstand harsh weather elements, you’re going to want to make sure that you use quality materials in the building of your hooped structures, especially when it comes to the tarps to be used on the walls and the roof. Remember that the roof and the walls is responsible for sheltering and protecting the hogs, and you do not want to compromise on their quality in order to save on cash.
