Plan the Mission

This week, we demonstrate how multiple captures in the same trap enclosure at South River Bottom, reduces the total minutes of labor per pig. We also reinforce the importance of operating multiple cellular cameras at the end of a hog control project. Selecting the most efficient process and products, to remove all age classes, without expending additional construction labor, is absolutely necessary to remove the final pigs from the property.

Harvest Efficiency Report

Report column totals for Episode 23 verify 16 adults, 12 juveniles and 17 fetuses were removed from this property. 45 pigs were impacted, in 15 events, expending 12 hours of labor, which equated to 16 minutes of labor per pig.

Mission Assessment

We removed 28 of 28 targeted pigs for a 100% removal success rate. Therefore, we accomplished our performance goals, using a trained and certified Hog Control Operator™, by trapping and shooting using our M.I.N.E.® Trapping System and a thermal scoped rifle. The total number of pigs impacted during this mission was 28.
Episode 23 Mission Assessment

Return on Labor

Our total trapping labor was 7.75 hours. Trapping labor per pig was 11.34 minutes. We arrive at this number by multiplying 7.75 hours times 60 minutes which equals 465 minutes. Divide this number by 19 pigs trapped to equal 11.34 minutes of labor per pig. Total shooting labor was 4.25 hours. Shooting labor per pig was 63.75 minutes.
Episode 23 Return on Labor

This episode, the annual damage prevented by trapping was $16,400. Annual damage prevented by shooting was $1,600. $16,400 divided by 7.75 hours gives us a return on labor of $2,116.13 per hour from trapping. $1,600 divided by 4.25 hours gives us a return on labor of $376.47 per hour from shooting.
