    I'm sorry to hear that. That's always really tough.

    Pigs and poultry are probably the only two omnivores you're going to see being kept as livestock on a farm. Both like to eat meat as well as plants.

    Welcome! So glad you could join!

    I'm so sorry Nate. My understanding of pigs (I don't raise them, but friends of ours do) that if you put rings in their noses, they won't root in the ground as much.

    Yes, that is why the rings used to put fences together are called hog rings. The tool to install them are called hog ring pliers.

    Anything set within +/- 2 days of set day counts for the Hatch guessing contests.

    Anything set outside this window are welcome to join, but we can't count them for the hatch totals. In order to manage these contests and record everyone's numbers, we have to have deadlines.
