Pig shelters are essential to keeping and raising pigs in agriculture, sheltering pigs protects them from harsh sun exposure and also assists in regulating their body temperature to ensure the best health and performance. The ideal conditions for housing pigs range from 18-20°C with low relative humidity, when outside of these conditions; pigs will need to pant more rapidly to remove the excess heat from their bodies, which can lead to respiratory issues and gradual death.

Polytex provides a wide range of piggery products and pig shelters to protect your valuable livestock; the range includes shelter covers, side and end blinds, thermal covers, and ventilation tubing. Polytex shelter covers will protect against direct heat from the sun and adding thermal covers and side or end blinds will ensure your pigs are kept warm in colder conditions. Polytex’s ventilation tubing for pig shelters substantially improves airflow to ease internal conditions keeping them closer to recommended pig housing standards.
