Born in a Barn
Born in a barn? That’s a good thing. Barns today are modern and clean, which helps pig farmers keep their animals from getting sick.
Here’s three ways being born in a barn keeps pigs healthy:
Farm visitors sign in and out of the barn, so farmers can trace where any potential disease outbreaks come from.
Many farmers have on-site showers and require visitors to shower before entering the barn to prevent them from tracking in bacteria from the outdoors.
Barns and stalls are washed and cleaned frequently.
