An important part of our responsibilities to Partners and Potential Partners is to continue to educate you on the versatility of Pigs, and why the world is so enamored by them. Here are 4 facts about pigs, we’re certain you had no idea of:
Smart Animals – Piglets respond to their names at age of 20 days
Newborn piglets learn to run to their mothers’ voices, and can recognize their own names by the time they’re 2 weeks old. Sows have even been known to ‘sing’ to their young whilst nursing!
Agility – An adult pig can run up to 11 miles per hour
Think that pigs are slow and lumbering? As it turns out, they’re not at all! Adult pigs can run at speeds of up to 11mph, or in other words, they can run a seven-minute mile. Could you do any better?
“So, then I said to her…” – Pigs communicate with each other
When they’re not squealing, they’re talking. Pigs communicate constantly with each other, and more than 20 different vocalizations have been identified; from wooing a mate to saying ‘I’m hungry!’
3 Months, 3 Weeks, 3 Days – From Gestation to Birth
Sow’s pregnancy lasts 114 days and it can give birth to between 7 and 12 piglets, two times per year. For us and our Partners, this is a huge win as this makes for impressive returns on each pig!
