kunekune Paddocks and worming

Post by WoodlandDan » Wed May 04, 2011 11:20 am

I have six pigs in 3 acres of woodland how many paddocks would i be able to split this into as they are currently wild in all 3 acres or dont i need to split it up. i was just thinking if it was split up it would keep tabs on worm burden. im new to this so any advice very helpful :)

I'd use a simple energiser and electric rope/stakes, and move them along every three months.
If you give them about a quarter of your 3 acres each time, that should be plenty for 6 pigs, and you'll get better re-growth, and no 'pig sick land' worries :)
Never test the depth of the water with both feet!

Thanks. That is a good idea the only downside of that is that we going through a series of electric fence and battery thefts at the moment. i will bear your idea in mind but other ideas also concidered. Help needed!! :D

You're not heavily stocked so I don't think you'll get too heavy a worm burden. Just worm every 6months.
