The hog days of summer

This is Paul's sixth post about his 4-H show pigs for NDFB's weekly blog, My NDFB Life

By Paul Hanebutt

A few posts ago, I talked about taking care of the pigs when it is hot outside. June wasn’t too bad, but July has had some hot days so far. People often call them “the dog days of summer” but I refer to them as “the hog days of summer.” With these hot days comes extra responsibilities, like keeping the pigs cool and comfortable. During these hot days, feeding the pigs during the cooler part of the day is important. We as humans don’t like eating in 100-degree weather, and neither do pigs. So, it is crucial that I wake up (with the help of my dad) to feed the pigs early in the morning and late in the evening.
