Another use for Solexx™?

A potential Solexx™ greenhouse covering customer raised the question of how well Solexx™ integrates with farm animals. I checked with Gwen Brancato, our dealer from Wisconsin for the answer. She says, “I grow a couple of piglets in my greenhouse over the winter and use them to make compost all winter along.” The main issue she had is that pigs can lift the greenhouse, “and they WILL eat/chew on ANYTHING they can reach!”

 To overcome that problem, she keeps her pigs in the center of the greenhouse. She fastened boards on the inside of the inner posts and used an electric fence to keep them from tearing everything down. Venting is also really important for release the “waste” gasses. She also recommends straw bedding. Raising the pigs in the greenhouse works very well for her. The pigs and the compost keep the greenhouse warm enough to plant through the winter and they help with the air flow. She plants over their heads and around the outside of their pen. So pigs, compost and plants are a great combination! For more information, call Glenda at 1-877-476-8399 or Gwen at 715-539-9740.
