    Anybody here know where you can find the hog rings that have the spur that comes up over the snout? I am having problems finding them locally.


    Thanks,

    Any real farm supply store should have them. Livestock supply store will have them as well.

    They are often known as Humane hog rings. You might want to get a ringer (ringing pliers) made especially for these types of hog rings.
