I filmed Ryan showing me how to feed the pigs after my fiasco the other day when he was away. I ended up with fermented feed dripping down my legs into my boots. I have learned. Wear pants. Be prepared. Distract them before hopping over the electric fence. Let Ryan feed them.
Our our four pigs are Berkshire’s. They have a large pasture area to root, forage and play. They get loads of garden scraps and also organic feed, which we have started fermenting. They love it and it helps stretch the feed a bit further. Organic is three times the price of the regular corn/soy GMO variety. It stings but we feel pretty strongly about it. Next year we will have goats milk which will cut back on our feed requirements substantially.
