Banding pigs : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Have any of you tried banding pigs instead of cutting them. Seems like less chance of infection. Also what is your best way to try to hold them still?

I was told never to band pigs .Cutting is fast and easy.

Thomas, I don't belive you can band pigs. Their testicles are real close to the body. Find an Ole Farmer to show you how to cut them. It is not very difficult but much easy to show then to explain.

Foud someone to help.I was told you could band but you had to pull them through the band. Could not get it to work. Hint use a sharp sharp knife.
