If I you are buying weaner pigs
this spring (tip: it’s always best to get two) make sure you have a plan for where to put them when you get them home. You’ll want a sturdy pen/cage where they will be secure while they get used to you, their new feed and new surroundings over a few days before you let them out, preferably into an electric fenced-line area. This helps you to avoid frantic piglets belting around the neighbourhood at random for days. A good pig shelter has shade, so a pig can get out of the sun and avoid sunburn. Also, pigs don’t sweat, so a cool area is vital.
