Nebraska Winters

January 18, 2012Animal Well-Being, Pork

Winters in Nebraska, and the whole Midwest where a large majority of livestock are raised, can be brutal. Last winter when it was -25 degrees F with the wind-chill, I took this video showing the comfort of our pigs in their temperature controlled barn of 72 degrees F. Even in the most extreme temperatures, my family ensures each pig remains warm, healthy, and well-cared for.
