Portable Pens

Examples of Portable Pens

The pen shown below is comprised of four 16-feet-long hog panels arranged in a square shape and simply tied together at each corner with baling twine. It is easy to drag across the pasture one corner at a time. The Guinea Hog piglets shown are enjoying the pasture and did not move their pen. Photo courtesy of and copyright by Audacious Acres.

Happy Hogs in Their Shelters

The photos below show a different configuration in which the 16′ panels have been bent to create a 4′ x 12′ rectangle, and uses cement blocks hanging from the panels to help prevent the hog(s) from moving the pen. These hogs are happy with shelter overhead and grass underfoot. Photos below are courtesy of and copyright by Kevin Fall.
