Fit a fender and keep foxes out

FITTING a fender to sow huts can keep piglets in and wind and foxes out, so achieving better weaning results, says Panelarc.

It says the fender, which features rubber flaps to allow the sow easy access and protect her underline from damage, can be fitted to most hut types. It is said to be designed and built to last.

The fender costs £64 (01845-587310).
