What do pig farmers actually do all day? We put the ask out earlier and got these #felfies (farmer selfies). Seeing these farmers in action was so popular we asked for more and here’s what we got this time:
Learn more about the Stateler Family on their Facebook page.
Neil says, “Expert animal care involves paying attention to the animals eyes and ears and body language, this will tell you if they’re feeling healthy. Sometimes you’ve got to get down to their level.”
Kyle’s family named their farm “Maken Bacon Farms.” Kyle shared, “I am doing my daily chores checking the pigs, feed, water and environment. It was -5 degrees outside and 70 degrees inside at the time the pic was taken.”
Emma loves this little guy since he is red and matches her hair color. She raises pigs for 4-H and to show at the fair!
Stacy shared this picture which was taken on Easter in 2013.
Sam shared this picture which was taken on Christmas morning at the farrowing house. He said, “In my family we always have to wait until all the chores are done to begin opening presents.”
John is on a daily mission to check feeders, waterers, temperature in the barn and make sure all of it is working properly. He ALWAYS (emphasis came from the wife) checks the pigs to make sure they are all looking healthy!!!
Here at the Ohio Pork Council we’re excited about the diversity of farmers that we get to work for, so we’re proud to share another round of #felfies.
