Being a Good Pig Manager

Pigs are very special creatures who deserve a clean environment in which to live, proper health maintenance and affection. A good pig manager, be she a pet owner or a breeder, should be:

bullet

Organized: Adhere to strict vaccination and feeding programs. Provide your pigs with necessities, a healthy environment, and creature comforts.

bullet

Patient: Take time to understand your pigs. Observation is an excellent teacher. If you let your pigs know what it is you desire of them, they are most likely to respond appropriately.

bullet

On Top of Things: When a problem arises, deal with it immediately.

bullet

Appreciative: Pigs have very definite personalities with a real ability to communicate. Treat your pigs with respect and affection, while maintaining your position at the top of the pecking order. You will be paid back in their improved performance.

bullet

Knowledgeable: Become pig-wise by reading and talking with other pig owners. Develop a relationship with a vet you respect, attend seminars, shows and pig programs. The more you know, the more effective pig manager you will be.
