Does pig oil work?

It is simple to attract hogs, just pour Pig Oil™ on a tree or rubbing post near your blind or stand and attract hogs for miles. Also great as a trap lure, Pig Oil™ will keep hogs coming week after week. Hogs will come to rub on the application site night after night.

When you use Pig Oil you’re telling the hogs that you mean business. Most attractants wear off or wash away after just a couple of nights, not Pig Oil. Pig Oil will soak into the trees or posts and keep driving the hogs back for weeks on end.

This of course begs the query “Why do hogs wallow in pig oil?”

Our answer was they wallow in these strong smells to help advance their social standing. After nine independent scientific studies across three continents, Pig Oil has emerged as the most powerful hog attractant known to man. It is so strong, that hogs can smell just a few molecules of Pig Oil in over a billion molecules of air.

What is pigging in oil and gas lines?

Pipeline pigging is the use of maintenance devices called ‘pigs’ to ensure that the interiors of oil and gas lines are clean and free from obstruction as well as to ascertain pipeline integrity. Pigs can maintain pipelines without disrupting the flow of fluids through them.

Do pigs need heat?

In fact, most pigs do just fine without any kind of supplemental heat at all throughout the winter months. That said, there are some special considerations that need to be taken into account when you are raising pigs in the winter. Pigs are pretty hardy creatures, and in all my years of raising pigs, we’ve never had any issues with the cold.

The pig is a homeotherm (maintains constant body temperature), and stable body temperature is important to the maintenance of general body functions. There is a normal temperature gradient such that the body ‘core’ is maintained at a higher temperature than the outer layers.

At 48 inches off the floor, temperature can be maintained at 68° F (20° C), but at the floor, or in this piglet zone, a constant temperature of 80-90° F (27 – 32° C) is desirable for much of the farrowing turn, or until animals are older and have less need for supplemental heat.

Why should you use pig heating pads?

When heat lamps are used, heat travels to the sow, and a warm zone to discourage piglets from getting too close to the sow is not provided. This exponentially increases the chances of laid-ons or crush losses. Second, by utilizing pig heating pads, there is no chance of “ blowing a bulb,” which frequently happens with heat lamps.
