Can you stop pigs rooting?

Post by Guy » Mon Sep 03, 2018 8:30 pm

Hello - I have two boars (castrated) who are about 6/7 months old. They live in the field at home. We have stopped feeding them pig nuts and now they just eat apples, vegetable food waste and grass. One of the pigs has become a serious rooter and I didnt think kunekune’s were rooting pigs. Is there something we need to feed him to stop him rooting?

Hello, it could be the age as mine rooted as ‘teenagers’ but stopped after around a year 18 months and didn’t really root again.
Good luck!
