Slick concrete floors in pens

Post by TEGG21 » Tue Sep 28, 2021 3:32 pm

We built a barn and I wasn't really thinking ahead to where we would be putting fair pigs.

My concrete where my pens are, are not very rough and I had a few instances where pigs would slide around. I would like to try and help this situation before we get pigs again in March / April.

I don't want to go crazy as I do take pens down after the fair and use the barn for other purposes. Would getting a concrete saw and sawing lines every couple inches in a diamond pattern work maybe 1/4 - 3/8" deep? I have bedding in the back half of our pens then like to keep the front half bare. Have 3 pens so total area is roughly 75 st ft. I have heard that doing some sort of epoxy wouldn't last very long? Open to suggestions. Thanks!

You can rent a concrete grinder to just rough up the surface.
