Agree with Williamc – shaded cover is best – trees ideally as they absorb lots of heat themselves and provide a cool natural environment. works for us humans too! Hogs will tend to move out of their houses and sleep outside when it gets really hot as well. Last year, if you recall the weeks and weeks of heat and dryness, it was understood that many hogs went into a summer hibernation due to lack of food and water – Aestivation – its called. I only hope we didn’t lose too many of them as a result of that episode!
