@MarlyB - We have inmates that work just right outside of the fence and tend to the livestock...lol... the clean the horsebarn and fields also. We also have field riders who ride horses all day and make sure the inmates do their jobs as assigned (hoe squad). Pretty interesting. lol.. They need more jobs there!

Hoe squad is working cotton fields, corn fields, dirt fields, etc. The hoe squad is supervised by a Field Rider Sgt. Hoe squad is strenuous work which you are required to work fast, in unison or else they get written up or thrown in the hole. I think of the chain gang when i think of hoe squad except they aren't chained together.

 I'm sure there are hog pens since it considered livestock. Go Razorbacks!


hahha..hey you're talking to a city girl that knows very little about farming/livestock especially in the state of Arkansas since i've only been here 4 months. I think at my specific unit, we don't have hog pens. Horses & cows.. I think the pig pens are at Cummins or Varner?? hahaha
