Mangalitsas on Small Farm

I'm busy this week, but thought people might enjoy this video.

Those are pigs on Christoph Wiesner's farm. Christoph is the President of the IGWÖ, the Mangalitsa Breeders' Association.

He's got those market hogs on a fairly small plot on his land. You can see how they are tearing it up with their rooting. There's a stump in that video. A week later, the pigs had dug it out completely. Given enough time, they'll dig up every tree you can see.

That red Mangalitsa sow has no business with those market hogs. She's supposed to be in a different area, but she broke into that area. She was terrorizing the market hogs and stealing their food.

When you keep pigs the way Christoph does, it is extremely tough to deal with exceptions and problem animals - you can't easily make that sow go back where she belongs. If the animals don't want to do what you want them to do, there's not much you can do about it.

just read your mention in wapo article- mucho congrats! love to see this movement growing. At some point I'd like to take one of your pigs, but just have to find a way to do so

Redman - where do you live? Maybe we could get you a bunch of pork via LTL freight.

I just sent a hog to Seattle's Crush (Jason Wilson's restaurant). It went direct from the slaughterhouse to him, in a big cardboard box.

I just sent 2.5 pigs to SF the same way - direct from the slaughterhouse.

If you live on the West Coast, we can probably get it to you at a reasonable price.
