Except the last time pigs were discussed it was pointed out that a pig sty
an open-air area, not a building, so "pig shed" is probably correct.

Would this be a better solution?

Pig shed and chicken coop are better, but I'm not sure they are correct.
To my mind, pig sheds and chicken coops are relatively small buildings,
not big meat factories.  It is the names used in the agricultural industry
for those large-scale operations that I'm unsure of.  Maybe
building=factory is the way to go, relying on other tags to indicate
what they produce.
