2.7.1 Intensive Animal Production Example 7

Location of Example: 118o00'34" East, 34o29'30" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Figure shows a free range piggery, where part of the layout is circular to enable groups of pigs to be rotated at minimum stress to the pigs and operators.
  • Shade shelters are visible in each of the paddocks. These are not permanent structures and may be moved over time.
  • A central handling area is present in the hub of the paddocks spread around the circle layout.
  • Access lanes are present, leading to the centre hub of the circular layout and along the centre of the rectangular paddocks
Regional Considerations:
