Great shot and the pig is really cute, though I doubt it smells will be pleasant to my finicky nose. The sad thing is that we can assume how this animal will end its life.

Thanks to all for the comments, Luvne32 I agree with you about the way farming is going. When the dairy farm I worked for made me redundant I was offered jobs by larger units running large herds. Though my job involved milking cows it also involved rearing calves for market, they received the same attention to detail I had always given the animals in my care. When they left the farm I had to think of them no more and concentrate on those still in my care, my own method of dealing with what became of them next. But the larger units had completely different ethics and I couldn't have brought myself to work for them even though they offered me very good money and conditions. The pig above has the fortune to be reared on an organic unit and will spend some of its life rolling in mud and breathing fresh air, sadly the final outcome will be the same but its life 1000 times better than those in factory farms.

I am not a vegetarian, but am deeply saddened by the way in which pigs are raised in the USA on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations. Even the word "operations" reveals the lack of humane treatment. I hope your portrait and my comment might make more of us aware and vocal about this practice.

About Cowgazer


I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
