Our Farms

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

The pigs are part of the whole farm plan with paddock rotations occurring every 3 years. Moving the pigs to a new site helps minimise the risk of disease and protects any impact on the land and the water table.

 

The Paddock Lifecycle at Western Plains Pork

The regular rotation of the pigs to new paddocks prevents the build up of nutrients which can potentially compromise the water table.

 

The piglets are weaned into open ended straw based huts where they can move around and interact with each other. The waste from these huts is cleaned out and left to compost. It is then spread out onto other paddocks throughout the properties which help’s to improve soil health and texture.
