Pigs Move to new spot on the farm

Coming to see what I have brought them!
We practise sequential grazing.  The pigs get a new spot to dig once they have dug up where they are.  Ken usually starts them in softer soil, and then after we decide on our pig tilling project each season we move them to an area where they "leapfrog from one spot to the next. 

Last Friday was the day to move them from the "easy dig" to a nice spot in shade that can easily be expanded.  This year we had help moving them - Thanks to Ian and Alastair Merton - their first "big pig rodeo" went very smoothly. 

Sprouts are their favorite
And the pigs love their new area - shade, soil, shelter and feed and water - hog heaven!
