the audio is a bit rough in parts because I could not get rid of all the traffic noise (I think Paul stuffed the phone in the engine compartment and yelled out the window at it recording this one )
Paul- if you can remember while recording in a noisy environment give me a few pauses so that I can sample the background noise it makes the noise reduction filter so much more effective if I can get a clean sample of noise
great podcast. i enjoyed it. i started out working on a commercial hog farm. a 1000 sow unit that was set up from breeding to marketing. and everything in between. long hard, and underpaid hrs. but i enjoyed the animals. ive never had the opportunity to raise hogs on dirt before. but i must say alot of the info on the podcast was similar to what i learned on the farm 20 yrs ago. great job. kudos to those that worked hard at it all.
I'm a first time pig raiser. I have two Tamworth pigs about 50lbs each. Can you give more specifics about the electric fence? You mentioned one strand of wire. I have two strands of poly wire around a 75' by 75' temporary paddock. I would like to get away with one strand when I move them next, but I worry about how high the strand should be? One of the pigs has escaped a couple times. If there is only one strand will he likely escape more often?
Loved the podcast. I have been wanting to get a pig ever since I viewed the documentary with Sepp showing how he plows with pigs. I work long hours, and lots of overtime at my day/night job, but I think I could find the time to throw some pee's out on the spot I want plowed.
Hey cool! They got a blimp! But I have a tiny ad:
