You Won't Believe What Pork Producers Do to Pregnant Pigs

You Won't Believe What Pork Producers Do to Pregnant Pigs | Friendly Pastures | Scoop.it
Imagine spending your whole pregnancy in an airline seat. That's what happens to most of the nation's expecting sows.
Andrew Siemer's insight:

After having pigs this article disgusts me!  Pigs behave very much like dogs (only smarter).  They love to run and play and chase one another.  When they see you coming they spring up from their mud pit or the shade under the oak and sprint to see you.  "OOOOFFFF"  "OOOOFFFF".  They love to talk to you and get scratched behind the ears.  I can't fathom keeping pigs like this.

Andrew Siemer's insight:

I have found yet another thing to grow on my farm.  One planting can yield up to 8 years worth of mushrooms!  WOW.

Andrew Siemer's insight:

Not only is our corporate pig producing sector very unhealthy and not nice to the pigs...but now it is going to also be owned by China?  EGAD.  I will stick to my backyard piggers thank you very much!
