August Pigs

To start off the month, two of our American Guinea Hogs gilts had their first litters.  Both delivered their piglets outside without assistance and have been wonderful mothers.

Just minutes old and already looking for their first meal.

Having nine new piglets caused us to switch from electric net fencing to hog panels to try to keep the little piglets from escaping.  It is much more of a production to move than the electric netting and in turn is not as large of an area.  Of course this means moving the fencing much more often.  How is it working?  Lets just say the hog panels become more and more effective every day.  Maybe one day it will even keep the little ones in.
