    B and B pigs

    I put wheels on our gates and they last about three weeks before being turned into component parts - on the lookout for steel replacements!

    Pig movements ?

    That's a shame as we are freedom foods.

    Classics Earning their keep.

    We use the 35x everyday as the main vehicle for feeding the pigs. We also have a 35 that's just used with a trailer taking hay around the place, or being used to carry the fencing materials. The Wheelhorse C125 is over 40 years old and gets used to cut the lawns and as the work vehicle around...

    That I'm not sure, it's one for auction, just says drive shaft so I assumed Prop shaft. I'm wondering if it's worth the ten hour drive for a look. Only want it to convert to a work/fencing vehicle around the farm, so not after anything expensive.

    low cost drinker/feeder

    low cost drinker/feeder

    Have been working on a cheap drinker feeder system. Almost ready to send it out into the field. I have a bodged up trial one that works well, but it's too hideous to show you all! It will have a lower set of nipples around the front for piglets if they want to try something other than mums...

    Fenders on Farrowing huts

    We have a couple of Ardvark huts as a trial as well, and the other 150 are the steel half round ones half of which have been retrofitted with plastic bolt on fenders. We keep the doors on the top of the steel huts as a nice visual clue for the afternoon feed, but the plastic huts look the same...

    Fenders on Farrowing huts

    I was thinking a plastic flag on the feed bin to let you know it had farrowed - like the old mail box style. Half of our huts have the plastic fender attached, the other half still have a detached steel one (it likes to get good suction in the mud). I can't see the fender always being down as...

    Fenders on Farrowing huts

    Hi everyone, Just curious, does anybody drop the fender before the pig farrows? We always drop it as we check and find them with piglets, however it seems like unecesarily disturbing the pig at a tender moment. I wondered if having the fender down as soon as the sow moves in would be better...
