Pigs from A Place in the Auvergne

A Place in the Auvergne went to get their pigs on Saturday, four that they will share with five families.

The barn temperature at the farm was 28 degrees Celsius for the piglets on the sow, 25 once off the sow and 20 thereafter.

We're worried ours won't take the shock and warmth is 1/3 of pig management. We've yet to plank the concrete floor of our pig-sty too. So work to be done.

For more on the day out and pictures of a typical mixed French farm in the Auvergne that we went to pick up our 25-28kg pigs from, visit A Place in the Auvergne.
