Designed to help with tackling the problem of feral pigs in Australia. The Hog Hold is a reimagined take on the traditional circular pig trap design, incorporating GPS technology and easy-planting mechanisms. All incorporated into an exceptionally sturdy and lightweight aluminium frame
Hi, My Name is Coen Lange and this is my Project. The short story to why I chose to look into feral pigs is because the majority of my extended family live out in Western Queensland, some as farmers. So I began looking into what issues do farmers face, to see if I could design something that could help them, or at the very least people they know. Eventually, I came across feral animals, from there I derived an idea about which ones posed the most consistent threat to farmers in Queensland. Two popped up as top contenders, feral dogs and pigs. So I asked myself, what problem could potentially benefit more from my ideas. Eventually, I chose feral pigs, a thorn that never seems to leave the side of many crop farmers, or if they do, it comes at a steep price. So I set out to redesign a feral pig trap to minimize time spent on set up, management, and deconstruction of modern traps. With that, I give you, The Hog Hold
