Obviously the first time hogs have been in those pens - there is still something on the ground, ground is still flat, posts are not chewed and panels are still straight. Take some before photos and more every month so you can watch the demolition crew at work........they do eat good. Our freezer is full and we took a year off.

I got 1 ring in 4 of the 6. Before I got tired and they got out of. The shoot ..I might be adding a single hot wire.


Make it as hot as you can get it because without at least 3 rings in their nose they will still dig with the side.
