    Hey Y'all,

    Fiance and I are getting ready to start raising pigs on our farm.

    I am in the process of building their pen. I will be using hog panels and the pen will be 16 ft x 32 ft. I plan on running an electrified wire inside the pen that is about a foot off the ground.

    Does that sound sufficient to keep 2-4 hogs in without worrying about them busting out?

    Let's see some pictures of y'alls setups.

    Great question. I've read that pigs learn to respect electric fences quickly. You might try posting in the Pigs forum of BYCs sister site, BackyardHerd http://www.backyardherds.com
