High Rise Baby Pig Movers

"It makes it easy to move baby pigs from our farrowing building to our nursery without crowding them," says Harold Trettin, Rockford, Iowa, about the "high rise" baby pig mover he built with the help of his son and sons-in-law.
The "high rise" pig mover is 46 in. wide, 65 in. tall, and 22 1/4 in. deep and consists of eight steel cages stacked four decks high. A center partition divides each of the four decks into eight 22 1/2 by 22 3/4-in. boxes. Each box holds four baby pigs, and there's a door on the end of each cage.
"We use it to move 3-week-old baby pigs from our 1,200-sow farrowing building to our nursery five miles away," says Trettin. "Once loaded, the pig mover is rolled into a covered van. The relatively small compartments make it easy to catch the pigs for unloading."
