26 floors, 650,000 animals, 580 million euros of investment… a gigantic pigsty has just opened in China

Nicknamed by the inhabitants the “hotel of pigs”, as reported by France Info, this XXXL pigsty must help the country to reconstitute kid herds, decimated by the African swine fever.

26 floors, 25,000 animals per level, 650,000 animals overall, 580 million euros of investment. In central China, reports France Info, a gigantic pigsty has just entered into service in this month of October 2022. The pigs are taken up to the different layers of this “pig hotel”, as the locals call it, by lifts capable of carrying 40 t. Four other concrete blocks of this type should come out of the ground eventually. Enough to accommodate… 3 million animals.


Despite its excessiveness, this pigsty aims to respect animal welfare and the environment. The promoters of the project, explain our colleagues, affirm that the pigs can move and are not piled up. And that the “hotel” generates only very small quantities of greenhouse gases and does not emit the slightest excrement, the wastewater being treated on location. France Info recalls that China is the world’s leading consumer of pork and that these XXXL farms should make it possible to replenish child herds, decimated by African swine fever.
