    Has anyone had any luck figuring out a way to feed a pot bellied pig for a couple of days while going away without the pig devouring all of the food in the first hour?

    I thought about an automatic feeder, but worry that it will malfunction in our Utah heat this summer or that the pig will destroy it once she figures out where the food is coming from.

    Is it best to hire someone to come take care of her while away camping on the weekends?

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!

    You really need to find someone to feed your piggy while you are gone. Even if you had the feed issue figured out it is a bad idea to leave animals unattended. Things happen.
