Wire Mesh Makes Handy One-Person Hog Holder
The "Comfort Castrette" looks like two sections of grated flooring connected along one side at an angle. You place the pig backside down in the holder, then slide one rod through the grate holes ù just ahead of the front shoulder. You then raise the pig's back legs up to slightly over a 90? angle and insert the final rod behind the hocks.
In addition to its use for castrating, the holder, which fits over the side of the pen, can be used to hold pigs to clip teeth, notch ears, or give medication.
Three sizes are available to handle pigs up to 40 lbs., to 70 lbs., and a large model for hogs weighing up to 185 lbs. The two smaller models sell for $99.50 (Canadian). The larger model, which has its own stand, sells for $185.00.
