Shopper's Diary: Rare (and Delicious) Pigs from Australia's Bundarra Berkshires: Gardenista

Shopper's Diary: Rare (and Delicious) Pigs from Australia's Bundarra Berkshires: Gardenista | Teaching Agricultural Science - Pigs | Scoop.it
A family-run farm in Australia's New South Wales is a blueprint for pig farming: rare breed Berkshires roam around 100 acres of pasture, eating—among other things—grass and dirt. They also take excess food from local suppliers. In return they fertilize and rotovate, repairing the earth as they go.

When a pig gets a gig

When a pig gets a gig | Teaching Agricultural Science - Pigs | Scoop.it

IT'S a whole lot easier to train a pig than it is to train a dog - just ask Jo Fenney, the head pig trainer on the classic Australian film, Babe.


The reason is very simple: "they have so much more of a motivation for food".

Being pigs, that's what you would expect, so a food reward-based training program worked wonders on the film.

 

It shows in the end result of Babe which was regarded at the time as a groundbreaking piece of filmmaking in terms of live action animal work and also animatronics.

 

Jo came to be involved as an animal trainer on the film while studying animal science at the Hawkesbury campus of the University of Western Sydney.

 

"There was a notice up on a wall asking for people who had animal experience to work on a new Australian film," she said.
