We picked up our pigs last week! This year, we got 5 red wattle crosses.
When we first get them, we keep them near the pig shed so they have shelter while they’re little. After they acclimate to their new home, we’ll move them out to the pasture, so they can start really grazing. In the meantime, they’re on feed and greens that we throw in for them.
They were a little nervous at first, but they settled in quickly, and were rooting around in no time enjoying the dirt on their snouts.
By the next day, they were content to snuggle up and snooze in between snacking.
