thinking outside the box

This Canadian pig farmer was faced with herding her 3,000 pigs alone and she couldn't manage the large, traditional "chase boards" or use an electic prod with that many pigs. Noticing that the pigs seemed to fear a moving red surface, she came up with an innovative solution that may make moving large numbers of pigs more humane and efficient. The video's pretty cool -short and a great demonstration of the effectiveness her invention (pictured here), the longarm.
