What is new with the hogs?


26 Piglets were castrated last week
11 Sows are almost ready to go into labor
2 New duroc gilts

Our hog manager has been mixing up some whey with ice cream as we speak. A mix that our hogs love!

Lastly, we have had a lot of turkeys around our pastures, they sense thanksgiving is near.
