Once a month I will be putting interesting Pig Facts on the site.


INTERESTING PIG FACT FOR DECEMBER 2011



Piglets are born with a reserve of iron that lasts only a few weeks, and the sow's milk is deficient in iron therefore receiving iron is important to the piglets. Piglets housed in an outdoor environment receive more than enough environmental iron from the earth or plants to meet their needs. Piglets housed indoors on artificial flooring need 2mg of iron in the first week after birth normally in the first three days.
