Hi,

First off thank you one and all for the help and Larry if it is easier to show me than come on down our doors are always open.
After reading all the help I have to admit something, all of you have moved lots and lots of pigs the truth is I only have two pigs Pork and Ham who weigh about 30 pounds each, now that you are through laughing, and I am sure saying to yourself Woman that is a piece of cake!! I needed to know because my husband about had a heart attack just trying to catch one of our four sheep, as he was laying on the ground with the sheep my only thought was "Is the life insurance up to date"? Three months of farming??!! and I could write a book already of what not to do? Thanks for the help. We are moving the pigs tomorrow so I will let you know how it went, if you dont hear from me you know it isn't wenting at all.

Use a wire hog panel, bent into a U or O shape.

Here are a few of the pigs we move across our yard twice a year. We move them to the farrowing building when it's time for them to have pigs,and move them back when we wean them. Piece of cake.:{)

Grab 'em by the hind leg and carry 'em.

Thanks also for the hint about the poop. I was really doing the s--- Kicking dance whenever I fed them. I finally got smart and just put everything over the fence.

How many years before I at least learn the basics?
