Pigs in Spring Pasture

It's been months since uploading some photos of our animals, but we assure you, the autumn and winter months have not been idle. We added ground for pasture, mended existing fence lines, added gates to better manage rotation, reseeded pastures, placed concrete feeding troughs, installed tanks for dispensing organic whey, and seeded barley, triticale, field peas, and safflower for harvest in summer.

On a rainy Saturday, we moved our hogs to their spring pasture of young barley, vetch, and mustard. Luckily, I remembered to bring along a camera.
