Hard to tell from just one angle, but some type of homemade kiln ?

I usually quit thinking after one. My hogs don't squeak , they squeal.

OK , maybe a place to put homemade bread while it cools ?

Not a bread cooler or a warming oven, but it is called a watermelon.

It's a hog oiler. They are filled with oil and hogs rub up against them. They spin on the axis and oil comes out the holes. If I remember correctly grandpa just used motor oil and a little kerosene mixed together, oh and coal tar to keep shoats from chewing on each other.

When I was real little he had lots of sows on dirt lots. He built a modern (concrete floors) farrow to finish facilities in the early 70's. Sows having pigs on dirt can get real interesting, they can get pretty mean. I wasn't allowed in the sow lots by myself until I was 8-10 years old.

Just wondering. :lol:

Yes it is. This one is a "Watermelon" made by Columbia.
It’s easy to idealize the small farm of the early 1900s as a haven of pastoral bliss.
The reality, however, can be a bit less charming. Hog lice, for instance, presented a significant problem for farmers. Severe infestations caused sores and hair loss. And in the days before vaccinations and antibiotics were common, hog cholera also posed a very real threat. In years of severe outbreaks, Midwest farmers faced potentially devastating losses.

Against that backdrop, the hog oiler made its debut.

Live and learn, all we did was pour burnt oil in their muddy wallows. The rest they did on their own.
