Lewis Livestock – Polyunits for Production


Can Poly-units be a cost effective and diverse alternative to traditional livestock housing?

The rising popularity in poly-units in crofting contexts goes hand in hand with a rise in diversification opportunities.

This meeting will look into the possibilities of using poly-units in a livestock production enterprise.  As a means of cheaper, alternative housing to conventional agricultural sheds and what it means for rurally disadvantaged land use, and crofting and small holding businesses.
