I have an idea that might work. What if you took 2 275 gallon liquid totes, cut off 1 side of one, 2 opposite sides of the other, wired them tightly together and rigged a door on the tote with 2 sides cut off. Then use a drill and a jig saw to cut some big holes in the plastic between the cage supports for ventilation. It would be ugly, but easy to clean and practically indestructible.

You can probably buy 2 totes for $70.00 off of Craigslist or Facebook.

That would work bud, I could even put a divider down the center.

Keith, that sounds like a cool idea!! I'm gonna look in to that. I don't mind ugly lol...


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Reminds me of a story a friend told me once. They showed goats in 4h as kids and had accumulated a herd of about 6 goats. After they all went to college their mom got sick of the goats and loaded them in the stock racks on the farm truck and headed to the sale barn with them. While in town at a stop light she noticed everyone around her laughing and pointing at her. She looked in back and the Billy and one nanny were making love in the back.

Trick I learned from an Old German Nun when I was in the service, to get a Pig up the ramp and into the truck, face it with it's back to the ramp, shove a bucket over it's head, and chase it up the ramp while it backs up.


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

Beware! Jill Pudlewski, Ron Oates and Keven Begesse are liars and thiefs!

That is a frame that holds it level with the tail gate of my truck, so all I have to do is push it in when I need it. I have a little tarp,I use when itís hot. The hog pen is level with the tail gate to. So all I have to do is back to it.

I have an old cap/topper I put on to haul hogs. Throw some straw in and go.

Hippie, that would work but my circumstances will require a smaller space.

Just haul them in the cab. Slap the seat belt on them and go.
