With all this rain we been getting, the pigs are hitting the hay and sod farms hard at night... Easy walking for them and the big fat grubs are right under the surface...

Havent been on for a while an am just seeing this. As odd as it sounds take a packet of grape coolaid mix an sprinkle it on corn, works pretty good lol. That or a 5 gallon bucket of corn with a cup of diesel fuel mixed in (very strange I know but it drives them NUTS)

Try jello instead of koolaid... the protein seems to help somewhat...
