    Went out and checked/fed the pigs this morning. Noticed that they had white foam looking stuff coming from their snouts. Is this normal or something to be concerned about?

    Gee I sure wish I could help, a guess is they may have a cold? Hope someone who has more experience chimes in soon to help you out.

    It happends in boars all the time when they don't know each other. Its just a sign in boars that they are ready to defend their territory. So they might be irritated with each other. We threw an old boot in with ours to mess around with. But then they thought they could go after our boots!
