Tinker toy barn
Generally speaking, this appears to be enough space for the pigs to get in and eat the produce. It's sized so that a single tractor scoop will clean the area. I think I need an apron on the outside, though. It's tough to get the trailer right up to the opening. with a concrete apron we'd dump there, and then push it into the feeding area.
This is the first time that I've been able to see clearly how much volume the pigs eat. When they got done with this batch it was down in volume by at least 75%. I'll let them root through it tonight and see what it looks like in the morning.
