Hot Lil Piggies!
Does anyone else feel like when you walk outside, you're standing directly on the face of the SUN?!
It is so flippity-flipping bright out and H-O-double-T!! The heat index in our little part of the world has reached ridiculous record highs at 110 degrees. Yowsers! It's times like these when I'm A) thankful that I don't have to work outside and B) for the wonderful man that invented the air conditioner!
Unfortunately, the pigs on our farm don't have it quite as easy. Did you know that piggies can't sweat? Here in the last several weeks, Big D has been working his fanny off keeping the pigs as comfortable as possible in the summer heat. Everyday, our folks are spraying all of the pigs with water hoses to try to keep them cool, also - every one of our momma sows has her own individual box fan, ontop of the ventilation system installed many of our barns that keeps the air moving constantly.
