Suffolk-based auctioneer Peter Crichton will sell the pig equipment from a 350-sow indoor unit at Brentwood, Essex, on Saturday, April 26.
The auction, which starts at 11:00 and will take place at Dagwood Farm, Doddinghurst (CM15 0JB), is being held on behalf of WH Norris & Sons, which destocked and closed the unit on March 3 this year after 65 years of pig production.
The sale includes two 16-crate portable Finrone farrowing containers, one from November 2010 and the other from July 2009; two Lambert Geerkin sectional farrowing houses with eight crates each; and seven banks of Trobridge sectional pig finishing buildings.
There’s also a selection of 80mm EB Autofeed feeding lines; a feed mill and feed bins; and the usual sundry items.
