    I am want to raise 5 pigs and looking for information on building the pen. From I have read a lot of contraversy about electric fence. So this is my plan.

    Hog wire 4'x 16' using steel post every 8' and maybe using T-post in between the steel post.
    Size of pen 32' x 32' with shelter. And a spot for mud pit. No electricity for fence.

    You might string a strand of barb wire along the bottom of the fence to discourage digging. Many electric fence chargers are solar and no electricity is required.
