BPEX’s Finisher Pig Buildings Design and Build – a blueprint for English farms is now available for producers to order.
The folder is BPEX’s comprehensive guide to new building construction and show’s producers how to plan, design and build a new finishing house.
The guide’s nine chapters cover building designs, focusing on both solid- and slatted-floor options, slurry pit construction, feeding system options, ventilation systems and renewable energy opportunities.
The finance chapter informs producers about all the funding options available, including mortgage possibilities, leasing, hire purchase and various guarantee schemes.
The folder also provides detailed information on planning, environmental compliance, management, nutrition, veterinary health and assurance.
“We’ve received huge demand for this folder,” BPEX’s environment programme manager, Nigel Penlington, said. “This interest is really encouraging because it demonstrates that, in spite of all of the other financial pressures faced by producers, the construction of new buildings remains a priority.”
“It’s heartening to see that producers recognise the ultimate value in investing in new, more efficient structures.”
