    Does anyone know of good pictures on the internet of castrating a pig? I have never seen this done and don't know anyone to come help. I have read instructions but they make no sense to me.

    What happens if they bleed too much or get an infection? I know when I band my goats I have had them get infected but if caught in time I just put antibacterial ointment or spray on it. Lynn

    Hi Lynn, I spray 70% acohol before I cut and betadene afterwards, Never had any bled to much, did have one with a hernia and the intestines came out the cut. Had to put it to sleep. Daryll in NW FLA
