Families on a day out to Odds Farm Park will love to meet new resident Igglepiggle pig, a Middle White Gilt who will be one year old in July!
She comes from a breeder in Essex who shows Gloucestershire Old Spots, Tamworth and Middle White pigs at agricultural shows and one of her Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs won Supreme Champion at a show! Visitors on a day out can meet Igglepiggle at present in the Undercover Animal Barns.
Visitors on a day out will also be interested to learn that the Middle White can offer a unique breed characteristic – a short nose that makes it ideally suited for grazing, as opposed to rooting. It is able to obtain a considerable part of its dietary requirements from grass alone, except in extreme weather conditions. The sow is an excellent, milk-yielding mother, being extremely caring of her young, yet generally placid and easy to handle.
