We are looking for a couple of second hand pig tents ( tarpaulin on top and straw bale sides) to use as lambing accommodation. Please contact us if you have or know of any for sale. Andrew

Hello Andrew

The sort of arrangement you are looking at tends to be used until the straw is no longer any use ie wet and rotted. Moving the bales would be fairly difficult.by that point  
and pretty mouldy. You would be better to build your own from scratch.

The type of housing you describe is generally used as temporary in that it is put up knowing that once the straw is too wet and spoiled to do its job a new one is built.
