Has anyone ever tried to raise pigs the "natural" way? As in, non temperature controlled buildings with no farrowing crates? My aunt and cousin have raised pigs for years, but always with the heated farrowing house in individual crates. I know the crates provide the little piggies with a place to escape if mom goes a little crazy, but has anyone had success without them? Here's a pic of my (hopefully) future brood pig. Her name is Tina and she taught herself how to drink milk from my lambar.
