HAULING HOGS - An update on my DIY trailer used to haul the pigs

Farm supply places have 3/4 inch thick 4 foot by 6 foot long rubber stall mats - I use them all over for non slip surface.
I usually out a bed of straw in the trailer. They can get comfortable for the trip.
Great video thanks so much it was helpful to us. We used a goat tote in a Chevy Colorado. The goat tote was designed and welded custom to fit 40x70 between wheel wells. Two hogs about 120lb each. We built a ramp about 30 inches wide with cross pieces like a chicken ramp. We had walls on it but ultimately we had to remove those as the pigs did not like being closed in on the ramp. They trotted up and down the ramp with no problem over several days. We put an old rug under the goat tote so they would not slip. We set it up and it took a day for them to get used to seeing it and smelling it. Then we put cookies up the ramp and they were slow to go up all the way. Finally we just put their familiar feed bucket up in the goat tote with feed and walked away...after that we fed them in the goat tote twice a day for 4 days. Day of delivery to the butcher they just happily ran into the goat tote and ate a very big breakfast, wetted down so they would stay hydrated. We strapped the goat tote to the truck and there was no drama it went smooth. Butcher was 42 miles from homestead and they were happy the whole way. The day was overcast so they didn't even get over heated. Your video gave us confidence to even try this and saved us a lot of money buying a trailer we really do not need. Thanks so much! FYI we bought the goat tote second hand and will be using it for sheep and goats as well.

Agro Space

Agricultural economics refers to economics as it relates to the "production, distribution and consumption of [agricultural] goods and services".

The word agriculture is a late Middle English adaptation of Latin agricultūra, from ager, "field", and cultūra, "cultivation" or "growing".
