Currently within our breadth of BQP farms we have successfully operating buildings that were formerly used for other purposes and have been converted to suit pig finishing. Clear span buildings are often suitable for conversion, previously cattle yards, broiler sheds and laying sheds have all been converted.

This example shows a converted former poultry laying shed.

If you think you have a building with potential, BQP will come to the farm and assess the suitability for conversion.

A layout will be drawn up to work out how many pigs can be held in the shed along with a cashflow to assess if the venture is feasible. We always encourage potential partners to visit some of our existing partners to understand how we work with them.

For suitable conversions we may offer an additional conversion payment on your first six batches.

How does it work?

The method of contract pig rearing that we operate has worked successfully for over 40 years and has allowed many young entrants to establish themselves in the farming industry and to grow further with us over time.

Several of our farmers have been with us for many years and we are now dealing with the grandchildren of some of our original farmers – a real success story across the generations.
