We are about to buy our second lot of weaners so quite new at pig keeping and need a good deal of advice which I hope I will  find on this forum.
We have kept two gilts, Berkshire Blodwen and Phat Phyllis, both very beautiful girls. We also have 5 goats, 8 ewes and a gander who goes by the name of Julian. He has the temerity to peck the pigs through the hurdle and is generally the boss of the yard. Tillie the  Staffordshire bull terrier and an old sheepdog named Shep and I nearly forgot Daisy the cat who adopted us.

We live in Mid Wales.
