The concrete cylinder pen design for cricket farming usually consists of a series of concrete cylinders that are around 30-35 inches in diameter, and 20-25 inches in height. The number and arrangement of the cricket farm cylinder pens depends upon the size of your production and building layout. The cylinder pen is able to hold and produce around 4-8 pounds of crickets through each production cycle. The benefit to using a concrete cylinder pen for your cricket farm is that it allows the cricket farmer to create an inexpensive cricket farm and utilize various design layouts. However, because of the size and weight of each concrete container, and the one-level restriction to the design, these concrete cylinder pens can be a disadvantage to larger cricket farms.
