Sounds like a great $100 spent and lesson learned for the future! Avoids the risk and trauma all together.


LOL, well my “holding help” that day was in a hurry and said that he didn’t see any more boars

I'm wondering what to plant in a section of land we had two pigs in for 6 months. The land used to be grass, but now is mostly mucky clayish soil. I'm hoping to eventually grow some food crops there, but I'm in no particular rush. I think the soil particularly needs biomass. Thinking about buckwheat. Any other suggestions as for possible crops? I have no tractor, and don't want to till too much. I live in Zone 8 in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks!


This is sorghum sudan grass that I planted back on July 2 behind where my hog tractors had been in the spring eating clover/rye/oats/wheat/brassica mixture. It grew like that on only 4 or so inches of rain and residual hog manure for fertilizer.

I’m in a similar situation here. I have one 100 boar that got missed somehow when we were doing his litter. I was going to do the get-him-drunk-and-wrestle-him method, but my neighbor vet that also has hogs said that he could knock him out and cut him for $100.

Does anyone here use high tensile electric wire to keep in their pigs? If so, how many wires and the spacing for post and wires. Another issue is that there are wild hogs in the area where I plan on fencing in .
