The heat will kill a hog quicker than anything just about. They don't sweat, so the mudholes are essential in the heat.... sometimes it just isn't enough.... Did see one commercial farm once put like a lawn sprinkler on them where it would constantly go back and forth with water to help keep them cooler....
So sorry....

I'm really sorry that you are losing pigs. Can you put up some kind of shade shelter? The liver damage you can do nothing about. I hope the rest of them are ok and have no liver damage.

That's the funny thing they all have shade and their mud holes are under shade as well. They all have a good size tree or two in their pen i could put up some tarps but it probably freak them out with the sound they make from the wind. The also all have a house that are also in the shade.
