To those who have msg's me sorry i havent replied yet!

If your down south try visiting they have some arks going cheap, £45.00 each although they do need the ply ends renewing. They also have a range of ready to go arks thay vairy in price.

If you midland ish, Give this guy a call he's a farmer just down the road from me. I have just brought 2 farrowing arks from him and another in need of a bit of tlc. He has loads to chose from along with other bits and bobs, and your allowed to barter a bit!

If you drop me a msg.. i will get back to you with a contact number for him. I just need to check he's ok with it being given out i'm sure it will be if theres cash involved!

The only thing I can find on ebay in pig arks are toys i.e a small plastic model. What am I missing....the gag maybe?

try pig arcs, pig huts, and any miss spelling of pig accomodation. I think we all call them different things. sometimes if you completely bugger up the wording you find real bargains on there, put on by other normal key board batterers who don't always correct their spelling. I think his pig hut has finished for now, but as he had a few they may return.
