Solar-driven mobile pig house

Published: 22 April 2014

A pig house that can be moved to new pasture every day with a tractor or solar-powered special traction machines. Magnus Nyman's idea was that a pig that thrives also is growing well. Magnus stands behind the invention MOP, mobile organic piggery.

When the pigs are moved each day, they cultivate the soil, they eat weeds and they fertilize for the next crop.
