Plastic arc for farrowing lasts & lasts

THE "Europen" is an insulated farrowing arc said to be highly durable and long lasting by makers European Factors.

It says the arc is a traditional shape but is made of glass-reinforced plastics instead of steel and wood. This is said to extend the life of the arc because it does not corrode and is highly durable.

The arc has a sealed airspace between inner and outer skins, an adjustable vent and weighted compartments. Cost is £180 (01728-453503).
