I contract feed so no I have no input in feed ration or genetics. Paylean (ractopamine) can really screw with certain genetics, these pigs have been assholes since they walked in the door but only recieve paylean after the first top out and honestly has had little to no effect on this group. Sometimes the stuff can be a real nightmare.

So turkey aggression really surprises me, I did not realize that they were that way.

Heard a story like SWMan, guy was checking pigs and had a heart attack in the pen, they found bones and no more.


Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

When the turkeys get bigger they will puff up and charge at you. They will beat the crap out of you with their wings even had some come at you like a fighting rooster. They will start to peck at weaker slower birds and won’t stop till the bird is dead

In western Canada paylean is a swear word. No packer will buy your hogs if they are feed paylean and if you mill feed you have to go through a certification that you are completley free of paylean. A lot of of countries we export to will not take hogs that have been fed paylean. Its just another trade barrier. We still see aggressive pigs without paylean that ear bite, flank suck, and tail bite. Chew chains have been a big help.

I have a few chickens and a couple roosters. They are getting older now, but when they were young, those rooster were fu#*ing scary!!!! Probably pretty funny for someone to watch a 6'2" man running and screaming from a psychotic rooster! Not funny when you are the 6'2" man.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

This movie scene comes to mind, certainly doesn't entice one to go into a hog barn !

The most durable toys I found were solid concrete blocks. A 4' piece of large hedge post does well also.

No shame in that. When I was little grandpa had a leghorn rooster (white *******) the prick would put the run on you if you got close to it. Try to spur you.
There the devil

We had a rooster.... called him elvis (sideburns) brother in law came by one day and crowed at him.... elvis was never the same after that... dont know what it was but something snapped in that little bird brain of his... turned him evil!

Keep calm and combine on....
