• Designed to satisfy a feral pig’s instinct to ‘root’ or dig for food, while protecting native fauna and livestock.

  • 100kg feed capacity.

  • Built-in baiting system ensures minimal disruption.

  • Smaller and lighter, for easier installation.

  • Can free feed and bait the same number of pigs as the larger model.

Ease and Convenience

Of course each landholder will have different needs and preferences, so the 100kg PIGBAITTA was created.

Designed for sites closer to home, the PIGBAITTA 100 model has a smaller feed capacity of 100kg, but can still free-feed and bait the same number of pigs. The smaller frame is lighter and easier to transport, making it a simpler choice for sites that are easy to access more regularly.

The Process:

Step One: Free Feeding

Once a suitable baiting location has been decided, the PIGBAITTA can be deployed with unbaited grain in an open configuration. The grain is freely and easily available, teaching the feral pigs that the location is a source of food. Using cameras, landholders can keep track of the animals coming and going from the area, until the feral pigs are comfortable eating and even sleeping in the area.

Step Two: Training Mode

The next step is to set the PIGBAITTA to a half-open or ‘training’ configuration. The still unbaited grain is visible and accessible, but the bar is lowered so that the feral pigs learn to lift it with their snout in order to access their meal. This stops livestock from accessing the grain, however thanks to their natural ‘rooting’ instincts the feral pigs figure it out quickly.

Step Three: Baiting

When the feral pigs have been sufficiently trained on how to lift the bar to access the feed, the PIGBAITTA can be ‘closed’ and baited grain can be implemented. The grain is now inaccessible to both stock and native fauna, so landholders can rest easy knowing no other animals will be at risk. However, the feral pigs know exactly what to do and can eagerly access their final meal.
