Its funny but all this is being done and has been done. There is no need to wait and see. A fella on another hog type site, just received nice good eggs from his female kennerlyi(what I am working with) and he does not cool his animals at all. 78F abient and 88f hot spot is what he reported were his temps. Which fits well with my past experiences.
My only interest in what your asking is Why? would you take that approach.
My test will not reveal what works well or not. The reason is, I will be using some very questionable males. In my group, I have one tested proven male, which is only going to be used on one female, the others will be little tiny, and even smaller, untested males. I do understand that hogs can successfully breed at a very small size. And many folks tell me that male hogs do not get large. Which seems to have some base. But, in the field, where these animals came from, I have seen males in the 20 inch, 24 inch and one 29 inches, which is identical to the size of mature females on that site. The largest females were 29 inches and one male was the same. So I have some questions about small males, mind you, questions are not answers. So yes, I am going to use a couple males in the 12 inch range. So yes, it will be interesting. One way or another.
