The real question is: Is it Skeener's B-day?

No I bought them from a buddy in South Texas who was switching them out for stand and fills. And yes, that's a pipe for filling using some sort of blower....which I don't have. Lol.

We just take that pipe and cap off and fill with bags. It a little bit of a whoopin but is doable and we only spill maybe 50 pounds out of 1200 we put in the feeder. Them pigs love feeder fillin days!

LOL@ spill-n corn!

Bet ya could make a corn blower. I remember "Trail Boss" did a DIY blower on here. Saved him a lot of time filling feeders at the BAO. Used a gas powered leaf blower through a 10 gallon metal trash can with lid and PVC. Had it mounted on a receiver hitch. Just pour corn in the can and watch it disappear. This was about 12-14 years ago on here.

If my calculations are correct, a corn blower using a leaf blower will move 13.33 pounds of corn a minutes. So it would take me 90 minutes to put 1200 pounds of corn in one of my feeders.

I can put 25 bags in one of these in about 20 minutes.

Got some family coming out tomorrow to do some pig hunting at my Dads. Guess I'll be playing guide. Not the ideal situation at this time but I guess I can't be 100% stingy with the pigs.
