Soulshine Ranch, 100 Mile House BC Canada: Removing wild boar piglet 1/5 of 15 piglets for castration. The trick? Remaining calm, calling their bluff. Notice how calm he is and how he passes the piglet to someone outside the pen instead of coming through the gate with sows on his tail. This ensures the sows remain in the enclosure. The piglet us held upside Dow. As they tend to struggle less and remain calmer than when they are held in any other position. The piglets were brought up to the barn away from sows to reduce stress levels for all during castration. The piglets were given a rest period of a few hours to ensure the bleeding was done and returned to their eagerly awaiting mothers. We waited till they were all 4-6 weeks before castrating to ensure all were strong and healthy for the procedure. We don't wean unless there is a reason, such as one being purchased as a pet as a weaner or a health issue. All our pigs are unvaccinated and unmedicated. We use diatemaceous earth for parasite control and natural pork raising principles.
