Apparently, boar pigs need their bits maintained every three weeks.

Why?

What do they do in the wild?

    To be honest, I've been breeding cui for years and never knew about this. Never had any problems in my males regardless of age. My expectation is that if you feed properly and they get the exercise they need they should be fine. – user508439 Dec 13 '17 at 3:28

    The first sentence in the linked source is "Older boars may develop a condition called impaction", key word is "Older", in the wild they don't live long enough to be "Older" – James Jenkins Dec 13 '17 at 16:58
  • @JamesJenkins If you look at all three articles (and other stuff on the webs) there are many people who seem to think it is just a fact of life for caring for boars, not just old boars like me. – abalter Dec 13 '17 at 18:48
  • @abalter I just glanced at the first line. I probably should have chosen not post the comment, as I really don't know anything about it, and it kind of half a lame answer. – James Jenkins Dec 13 '17 at 19:17
  • Tbh that sounds like they arent' getting enough water and greens.. – djsmiley2k - CoW Dec 30 '17 at 9:43
