How yall are? I'm in west central Louisiana (Natchitoches Parish), and my girlfriend and I have 5 mixed breed hogs (blue butts cross with who knows what). We are raising them on the ground, using electric fencing. A couple of weeks ago, we had some REALLY bad weather come through, toppling a beautiful grandfather red oak onto our pig shelter (pigs are fine) and frying TWO of my battery powered fence chargers. Luckily I had a small back up charger. However, while I was frantically rebuilding things and hustling up money for a bigger AC charger, I neglected to remove the old section of electric fence that no longer worked. They would pass under and over it, all the while contained in a larger pen powered by the back up charger. So, once I got my new charger installed, and it was pumping out between 6-7 thousand volts, i turned my pigs out into their pen.....only to watch as two of them calmly pushed up the bottom wire (4-6 inches from the ground) and wander where they pleased. So, back into their hardened pen they went (a wooden shelter surrounded by field fence). I call it their "re-education camp" because i have installed one strand of hot wire along the bottom inside of the field fence. Do you guys think that this will re-teach them to respect my fencing or are they now ruined educationally and fit only for sausage? Look forward to hearing your answers.
