What I am about to write is from MY own experience and knowledge gleaned from helpful reading and research about looking after pigs which has worked for me with added bits and bobs on the way together with a great passion for my Oxford Sandy & Black pigs (OSB).
It has to be said that looking after your pigs and keeping pigs, especially the Oxford Sandy & Black is one of the most wonderful, gratifying and rewarding experiences you will ever encounter. It has to be said that compared to all livestock the pig really holds it own.
(A little note before you start to read: I am very passionate about my oxford sandy and black pigs to the point of being obsessive so if you feel that I am going on too much just skip to categories that interest you. As my husband understands only too well!)
