I went out to the pen the other day to do my regular duties of
shoveling out the crap, and I noticed that there wasn't any. That's because she had been eating it! 8O Now I know this can't be good for the pig, and I'm curious as to what the meat is going to taste like. Does anyone know whay I can do to stop this? Is there a health concern? Should I feed her antibotics? Thanks.

Hi Snuffy!
Pigs have been known to eat their droppings. It's not uncommon. If I were you, I'd make sure she is wormed though. Just my opinion. :D

Hi Cowgirlone! How is the worming process done? Do you feed them starter with antibiotics? or do an injection? Thanks.

Snuffy, you can get a wormer and add it right to their drinking water. It's about the easiest way to treat them in my opinion. :D Your feed store should carry it.
