Complete Costs of Raising Pigs

Jul 2, I used to do it all the time up until the time I helped a friend butcher rabbits. About halfway through the butcher day my buddy dumped some rabbit guts to the pig and next thing we knew one of his pigs was down and choking. Both the pig and us could not dislodge the offal from the pigs airway and the pig dropped over unconcious. All we could do was an imprompt switch from rabbit butchering to pig butchering to salvage the pork from the pig. Now days I just take a few minutes to dig a hole and bury the offal and carcasses.

Messages: 9, They'll eat them. It might teach them to eat chickens in general. We pasture them together so I would rather not have the pigs thinking of the chickens as dinner. Chickens will also eat pigs, very willingly. The difference is they can't hunt them down and kill them as easily. Jul 3, Believe it or not, but I have vegetarian pigs!!! They wouldn't touch the chicken.


I gave them two roosters and they would taste, turn their nose up and walk away. I ended up removing them from their feeding area. I feed a vegetarian ration hog feed that is natural and I supplement with a lot of fresh vegetables and free range eggs.

I guess their getting everything they need and didn't want the extra protein. I wonder what the point is, since hogs are omnivores in their natural state. I bet if you leave the chickens in overnight they'd eat them. Ours always did.

Maybe if you skinned them? I know you don't want the work, but I hate to throw away free feed I know they weren't free, but if you're gonna throw them away otherwise they're sorta free hog feed. Ha ha I'd probably hold their regular feed to make sure they made use of the chickens.

pigs are not smarter than dogs

Cliff , Jul 3, Isnt all hog food vegetarian due to diseases? All the food around here is soy protein based. Jul 4, Messages: 8, You must log in or sign up to reply here. Nose rings have been used to stop pigs from expressing their strong biological drive to use their snout to dig. Studies of porcine behaviour have shown that being unable to root is very frustrating for pigs, because the pigs can no longer express normal nesting and digging behaviour. The RSPCA says pigs must not be nose-ringed to prevent them from rooting and foraging because this unreasonably restricts normal behavioural patterns through noxious stimulation.

I agree, and strongly encourage training and providing pigs with alternatives that allow foraging behaviour while at the same time preventing adverse effects on the environment. Here are some tips to help you have a nice garden and at the same time enable your pig Sue to express herself:. Accept the fact that she needs to dig and forage and accept this activity too as part of your daily routine.

Provide a digging and foraging area where Sue can dig. Supervise your pig or restrict access to lawns, garden beds or areas that you do not want her to dig. Remember that pigs are very affectionate and curious, as well as being highly intelligent and responsive to intelligent and sympathetic treatment.
