In other Farmer Fridays posts, I have explained some of the reasons that we raise our pigs on our family farm in climate controlled buildings. The past two days have been prime examples as to why we do it.
Yesterday, it was 23 degrees and snowed all day long. Although the snow stopped overnight, the cold temperatures remained and today we reached a high of 10 degrees. Meanwhile, our pigs were living in our barns that are kept anywhere from 65 to 80 degrees depending on the age of the pig.
I realize this may be hard to picture and actual pictures can't do it justice so see if this helps explain why we do it...
Hope you and your family are keeping warm tonight just like my family and our pigs.
