Ear Notching

Postby redwattlehogsdotcom » Wed Apr 22, 2009 6:42 am

I am familiar with this and of course use it on our hogs. However, I find at least once a month I get asked how to perform ear notching or how to read it. Could someone make an article or provide a link to one? I am sure some would like to have this info available. Thanks,

Jessie

My husband and I were actually just talking about making an ear notching video. We have a litter due any time, so shouldn't be too long before we can get one done and posted here.
