Basically yes....but that was before the net was actually electrified. The young ones dont go near it now and the only current issue now is Ivy is jumping the net. We have T-posts on it so we are going to have to go buy a few more and run some electric wires above the net. It is a short net only 35" tall so not a challenge for her. The net however is working fantastic for our turkeys and ducks. They have 165 sqft of pasture and we can add another 165 sqft of pasture if needed. We have not yet put the midget whites into the net because they are so light and small still they will fly right out.Are they pulling down the step in posts that are part of the net when they get stuck?
Sorry to hear that. We have lost a few to fences just not the electric net yet.We lost a lamb this spring that got caught in the netting. We later found that the netting wasn't hot due to a connection got switched.
I agree it would be however the rewards for income and exposure of our farm and pork would be huge. I mean we are talking minimum an extra $14,000 income a year and putting us in the bracket to be able to use/get farm grants and do some other programs we can't do otherwise.28 is quite a commitment for a small farm.
Thank you very much. We got the everything back from the boar we had butchered. Different pig then in the picture from my last post.Your stock has some awesome color.

Thank you. Breeding pigs is hard when you dont want to use crates or dont have a big pasture yet, or when the night they choose to have piglets it suddenly drops to 28F and then stays in the 30s for 4 days.So sorry about the piglet losses.
