Thanks Nic, I’ve read these with interest. Whilst I want to release my hogs at as safe a weight as possible, it’s not fair to keep them in a hutch for too long. We’re always careful to pick appropriate release sites and I think we’ll continue to look for good release from 650g onwards at this time of year. We’re fortunate to be part of a large network in Warwickshire with lots of experience and good local knowledge. Like all other networks at the moment though we are all completely full and are now referring sick or injured hogs on to The Vale. Thanks again!
