How To Make The Most Of A Pig, Before It Is Killed

Ensure that you pig has a good, fulfilling life, with plenty of exercise, shelter, acorns to nibble and scraps to eat. Give it the company of other pigs. Sing to your pig in the evening as you distribute the night-time straw. Pat your pig. When reading to your pig, avoid tales involving pigs whose houses are destroyed by angry wolves. Do not name your pig “Babe.” Name it “Bacon.”
