The time has come to castrate our first piglets on Mom's farm. She tried to do it, but froze, so now it falls to me to do it. I have read up on it and i'm sure I can do it, but I must admit that I'm a bit worried. I have heard so many horror stories about castration going badly. I need to know, Is it really as bad as everyone says or is pretty uneventful usually? I'm thinking uneventful myself, but that doesn't halp much to stop my worries. Please help me calm down about this. I sware if anyone posts anything related to animal cruelty in this thread. I have to do this end of discussion on that matter.
