Pigs.

I think people think pigs are very dirty stinky animals but that is not true (although at the moment whilst they are spreading on the fields I am not loving pigs...) Yes pigs like to wallow in the mud (much like my dog......)

While it is well accepted knowledge that pigs wallow in mud in order to regulate body temperature and keep cool, but did you know it is also for their wellbeing. So a happy pig has food and water, shelter with bedding, a wallowing hole, a place to forage and interaction from humans.

Keeping them where you want them:

Electric fencing is a highly effective way of containing or strip grazing your pigs and/or splitting up existing fields. A visible and easily moveable three line fence provides strip-grazing when it is erected across fields. So why would we move pigs around? It enables pastures to be rested, de-wormed and properly grazed and it can also be used to keep pigs away from specific areas or to separate incompatible animals.

Here are some of our Kits:

1. Standard Strip Grazing
The standard 3 line strip grazing kit comprises of polywire and twenty 85cms (3’) tread-in plastic posts and will cover a distance of max 160m. There is a choice of battery or mains driven energisers and both kits come with a complete set of instructions.

If your land is particularly uneven, or you do not have a wooden securing fence post already in place, then we advise that you add two steel corner/end posts to the fence line. These posts act as secure and strong anchors and provide additional tensioning and stability. We also recommend the use of wooden intermediate/corner posts; they provide security and stability to the fence.

3. Fire Drake Solar Operated Three Line Pig Kit 160m

This solar 3 line strip grazing kit comprises of polywire and thirty tread-in plastic posts and will cover a distance of 160m (if using three lines). This kit comes complete with everything you need to get up and running to fence your pigs in; including a complete set of instructions which are attached to your order confirmation.

Fire Drake Solar Operated Three Line Pig Kit contains:

  • 30 x 3ft fencing posts
  • 1 x 500m 6 strand polywire
  • 1 x Solar Fire Drake Energiser
  • 1 x 1m T Section Earth stake

  • 1 x 25pk insulators
  • 1 x 2 pack line to line connector
  • 1 x KV10 Fence Tester
  • 1 x Warning sign & comprehensive instructions

For this kit we recommend the use of wooden start and end posts.  These posts act as secure and strong anchors and provide additional tensioning and stability.  If you are using wooden posts you will require insulators which screw into the wooden posts and hold the wire in place there is a pack of 25 ring insulators in this kit.

The Solar Fire Drake energiser comes with a 12v internal battery and a 5w solar panel.  It also comes with a battery charger to help keep the battery charged during the winter months.  This energiser can power up to 2.5km of fencing in idea conditions. We have included a tester in this kit - the KV10 fence tester.  It is easy to use and it is possible to tell at a glance if the fence is working as it should.

 

So... I hope you have found this helpful and will look into keeping pig, not only are they a lot of fun to watch but they also make a good Sunday dinner!
