KK's and sheep hurdles?

Post by blades » Mon Jan 23, 2012 10:26 am

Hi.... can anyone tell me please if sheep hurdles can be used to create smaller pens for KK's or would they simply climb over them?

Thanks in advance

I use sheep hurdles all the time. You have to have ones that have pins and eyes not the slot together hurdles. We are expecting our first litter soon and what we have done is cable tie some weld mesh panels against the hurdles also you can use 1/4 inch or even 1/2 inch plywood. Good luck

Good idea as that would stop pig getting its snout through the bar so lifting would be tricky
