This uniquely designed modern equipment is indicated for catching, immobilization, and restraint of pigs for various farm operations (veterinary observation, treatment etc). The catchers are self-locking and well adapted for easy use.

The Pig Catcher is used to catch pigs and keep them in check, especially the stubborn ones. The catcher is designed for safer delivery of pigs. It has a pig catching pole with a self-locking mechanism which allows for quick, easy restraint of animals; with this catcher, you can easily handle your pigs for observation or veterinary activities.

There is a spring latch to adjust the length of the rod and turn the latch, you can lengthen or draw back the length. This makes it easily adjustable to the size of the pig head. The hook handle also supports easy gripping.

Handling Pigs

It is indicated that farmhands and stockmen who handle and restrain pigs should be shown the correct techniques relevant for the size/age of the pig. Correct handling and restraining a pig will reduce the risk of injury and stress to both the pig and stockman. Below is a list of considerations necessary for pig handling.

Before restraining a pig for treatment ensure:

  • All the required equipment is ready to use
  • The equipment is easily accessible once the pig is restrained.
  • When moving pigs, ensure the way forward is clear, secure, and obvious to the pigs and ensure that the pigs are moved from dark to lighter areas with no shadows.
  • When restraining pigs, ensure the area will not pose a risk of injury to pig or stockman ie nonslip floor, flat sides, clear of distractions, etc

Use of pig catcher for restraint

If the task will take a long time, e.g. to lance an abscess, the use of a restraining snare or snatch may be necessary to provide adequate restraint. They should only be used when absolutely necessary, and the person snaring should be trained and competent at this activity. The snare/snatch should be designed specifically for the purpose of restraining pigs and kept clean and hygienic.

Outline of use

  • Set up the area of restraint as above
  • Control the pig’s movement with a pig board
  • The size of the snare loop should be relevant to the size of the pig being restraint
  • Place the snare loop in the mouth and over the top jaw and snout of the pig, and adjust the snare diameter with the rod.
  • Move the loop as far back in the mouth as possible before tightening it
  • Hold the pole/snare securely, then use the pig board to immobilize the animal.
  • A second person can then perform the required task
  • Release the pig as soon as possible by smoothly loosening and releasing the snare and then return the pig to its pen
  • Pigs should not be restrained by snatching for prolonged periods.
  • Do not attempt to move the pig by pulling the pig by the snare
  • Pigs should not be tied up by the snare.
  • Never pick a piglet up by their ear – this can cause ear hematomas – or by a front leg or tail
