The Elderly Pig

Hi, I have a 10 year old sow and have been having trouble keeping weight on her over the last few months. Currently she seems fine but she is a long pig and any weight is always distributed beneath her and never round her spine. I have noticed in the last few days that she now no longer has any fron...

Hi, I did watch the programme last night. I think Jamie did an excellent job at promoting Brittish Pork and I agree it was very grim watching - could not watch the final moment! If you are going to eat meat and pork especially I must say Waitose are great at promoting animal welfare in all their pro...

Hi, thanks for that reassurance. I knew that the Sheep could not eat pig food. I have now been feeding the pigs a 50/50 mix sheep/pig with no problems. It has now nearly all gone and at least saved me a few pounds.

Hi, I have hand reared a kune and she turned quite nasty. Same problem she kept biting both me and the other pigs. Probably don't know what I am talking about here but I think because she had no one correcting her as piglet she did not know the order of things. I hope that you manage to get her out ...

2 Rams Free to good home

Hi, I currently have 2 rams one Texel and one Balwen which have become too dominant to stay where they are.

I really don't want to send them to slaughter :( and wondered if anyone in Worcester could give them a home.

If you would like any further info then please contact me.
