On this week's episode we talk pigs; ear notching, ear tagging and my LEAST favorite chore of all time. I share with you why we do what we do, I explain a little about the Universal Ear Notching System and I explain why we castrate males on our farm.
If you are up to castrating pigs yourself, these are the scalpels we use. Do NOT buy the crappy ones that Tractor Supply sells. It's an utter waste of money and will make a sucky job even suckier!!
Enjoy this episode (as much as you can find enjoyment in talk of castration!!)
