Bucky lunged, jaws snapping at me. He pushed me backward into the fence. Bucky was not happy with me. I had to get out of his pen fast.
It’s winter and since the electric fence is covered with snow and ice in places, the charge was weak. Ideally the charge in the fence is 9.0. One or two zaps on the snout generates respect for the fence. Pigs have great memories so after they touch a hot fence a few times they’ll never try again. If the fenceline is taken down or moved, the pigs usually won’t cross where the fence had been.
