Strong levels of confidence within the pig and poultry industries are returning as indicated by investment in housing, according to livestock buildings specialists, ARM Buildings Ltd.
The company reports a 20% increase in orders across both sectors for the first six months of this year. Within the pig industry, the demand has been for grower and finishing houses with producers looking to improve efficiency which modern, well-designed buildings can deliver. High feed prices have given this extra impetus.
â€œWe were very busy last year, so this jump in orders on the back of a good 12-months’ trading is seen as significant,â€ said ARM’s MD, Mike McLaughlin.
