The pig forum

Connect. Learn. Advocate.

The Pig Forum is our monthly educational gathering where we delve into the complex care required for large farmed animals, with a focus on pigs.

This platform serves as a space to enhance our knowledge and engage in meaningful discussions about the detailed aspects of large animal care, prioritizing their welfare and medical standards.

Pictured is our sweet Abbey Christopher with his friend, Annalisa. Abbey Christopher passed earlier this month at New Bolton after he was diagnosed with widespread lymphoma, which is not treatable. He lived ELEVEN lovely years here in sanctuary, which is a beautiful thing for a huge Berkshire pig who was destined to be slaughtered at just 6 months old. We are all better humans for having known him.
