Meet Jack Benny!

Jack Benny

Age: Unknown

Sex: Male


Jack was one of the eight pigs who came to OMI when Spring Farm Sanctuary downsized their operations in 2022. He was found roaming through a bean field in Iowa…very likely an escaped pig from a factory farm. He’s a huge, gentle Yorkshire with a devilish grin and a passion for the swamp. Jack is one of our most challenging residents for sunscreen application in the warmer months, but it’s an essential part of caring for pink pigs. The rates of skin cancer are extremely high, so we endure his growling and walk him gently through the process every day. Caregivers laugh daily at his dinosaur impersonation as he roars at us, which is really all for show. He’s not a biter at all.

Jack lives in our Gen Pop herd of pigs, and his friends are a mixture of breeds: Mangalitsas, Herefords, Ferals and a few little potbellies, too! The area we call the Washington/Minnesota neighborhood is our most diverse representation of sizes and breeds on the whole property. It includes Jolene from Washington, Asher from Tennessee, sweet little potbellies like Mister Lee and Betsy, Ferals like Falkor and KuneKunes like Bubo! They’re the most beautiful representation of how different sizes and breeds can live in perfect harmony.
