My family is doing a presentation this upcoming week for our home school group. We are going to talk about our cows and our hogs. I would love to hear everyone’s input about their LBHs as far as what they like about this breed, how they are different, etc.
One of my favorite things about this hog is their disposition. I have young children coming to our farm all the time. Sometimes family members show up unannounced and just go into the barn to see the animals. I do not mind so much knowing that the hogs will accept the not-so-gentle petting of people of all ages. My 3 year old regularly tosses feed, hay or fruit into their pen and they have all learned to be patient and not hurt him. We also regularly walk the pastures with him close to the pigs and interacting with them. The other favorite thing is the taste of the meat. YUM!
