"To market, to market"...

Try getting these into a trailer once ;)

Food is a good incentive. ;) If you can spare the trailer for a couple days, feed them out of there...and get the pigs used to it. Then loading them on the "moving day" will be a breeze.

Sounds like good advice from above comment...good luck!

yes, I was going to suggest what Sherry suggested. Pigs do tend to have their minds made up about doing some things, don't they, and usually it's not something like cooperating! LOL - you have some nice looking hogs there, I must say. thanks for sharing your lives with all of us. take care, Ang, from KY.

We have some hilarious memories of trying to load hogs to take to the processors.
Some of those memories came back this week at the county fair when we went to take a look in the hog barn and several hogs got loose. It was quite the free-for-all.
