Pig tractor

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who tills his garden with pigs. I am thinking of doing this. I think it will save me money, and fertilize as well.

having a pig tractor, (pigs in an enclosed moveable pen) is like having dogs. You still need to attend to them; feed, water, and move the pen when the ground is all rutted up, and poop is plentifull. I'm experimenting with 3 wean-off piglets, caught from the wild. I have them in an 8x10 stock-panel pen with barb-wire wrapped around the bottom so they dont lift it. I have wheels on one end for easier moving. I'm taming and training them to recognize electric fencing and come to corn shaken in a can. Its fun, Aloha
