Handy Pig SnatcherA "pig snatcher" lets Dennis Mattox, Sargent, Neb., easily catch pigs scrambling around in their farrowing crates.
"I usually work alone in the farrowing house and I used to dread trying to catch pigs in crates. Three years ago I built this device and it's made the job much easier," says Mattox.
The "pig snatcher" consists of a steel rod with a handle on one end and two
interlocking arms on the other end - one stationary, the other hinged. When the handle is squeezed, the hinged arm inter-locks with the stationary arm, gripping the pig. He made the device long enough to reach the opposite end of the farrowing crate while standing outside.
