Hi all would be interested in keeping a couple of pigs ive got 6 acres of land and would plan to keep them on one of the fields it 2 1/2 acres but fencing may be a problem and dont know if they would be able toget under it.

Do pigs tend to wonder off or will they stay in a certain part or field also what
are they like health wise are they easy at catching ilness as i have 16 chickens and 2 turkeys roaming aswell

Thanks

Shane

    Shane, where are you? the climate makes a difference as to how you will free range pigs. What predators are in your area? The fencing problem is easily solved by using electric stock fencing, as Blonde has said, read previous posts, the give some more information with your next questions.
