Pigs, Chickens, And Cats–Oh My

PigsWe already have cats on campus–our trusty mousers, and we are very excited about the coming additions to the farm this year. The new chicks are coming in a few weeks.
We were expecting to pick up this year’s pigs in 6 weeks, but they were born Saturday night and the sow was so aggressive with them (yes, she tried to eat them) that the farmer called me and asked if I would bottle fed them.
As it turns out, they seem to tray feed just fine (rather than bottle feeding them,  they actually suck the milk from a container at one day old).
So we are back to caring for animals on campus again 45 days sooner than we had counted on.
Also here is the next installment of the MC Greenhouse Video Log.
