By some accounts http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2011/...obs/index.html Farming & Ranching is more than twice as dangerous (in number of occupational deaths) than police work!
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.

Default Hog Skin

Domesticated Hogs can also be dangerous, notional and have little fear of humans.

I dated a girl whose father owned a hog farm. He warned me about certain hogs, which ones to avoid. Some where friendly, some weren't.

I watched a Sow with piglets, in an outside pen, eat a four foot Timber Rattler. This Rattler was at lest 12 inches in diameter. The Rattler struck at her a couple times, she bit it once and swallowed it pretty much whole, jiffy quick, chomp, chomp, chomp and it was gone. I was astounded. I was thinking of running to my truck to get my shotgun, but she took care of business before I could even react. The bites didn't seem to bother her any.
A hog skin is 1/2inch thick. A snake bite doesn't effect them.

Had a sow attack a ranch hand here. Started biting him like a rabid dog. He had to put it down with his pistol.

I don't know about hog skin being 1/2" thick. It certainly isn't on the legs and face. I think a lot of folks consider the skin to be the skin and the layer of fat and connective tissue underneath it, which can be a 1/2" think or more, but only part of it is skin. Combined, it does all help protect the hog.

It does do a good job of protecting the hog from bites. The skin will still be damaged by the bite, but because the venom likely won't make it to the blood stream, the damage is quite limited.
