Once a month I will be putting interesting Pig Facts on the site.


A USA university conducted a study of pigs whereby the same breed and same number were kept in separate pens one lot were fed, talked too, pampered and generally treated with very tactile keepers whilst the others where just fed with no interaction or pampering. The result was to show when they went to slaughter and the meat consumed, the pigs that were pampered tasted better and the meat more tender than the ones which were not.
