The gestation barn is typically the largest structure on the sow unit. Proper housing for sows helps promote productivity, longevity, and welfare of the animals. Depending on the intended function of the building, either for breeding or gestation, these buildings are custom designed and built.
Multiple truss profiles are available depending on width of the building. You can select from gable to gambrel. The advantages to gambrel include: lower peak height, lower costs, quicker air exchange, and reduces unbalanced snow buildup.
