Hogs on Pasture
You don't see this every day. This was in December. When I was in FFA 40 years ago we would farrow hogs in confinement, but brood sows were kept on pasture much like this. Some think this is environmentally friendly or a good organic practice. In this case there is no harm done, but in the "old" days there were far to many hogs in streams and etc. Farrowing on pasture is definitely not the way to go. To many lost to predators and sows laying on them. Soil Survey for Precision ag will continue Sunday evening.
