Rotational weeding

 I grew a fine crop of weeds this year, and I'm actually pretty happy to find that the pigs like eating them.  In the picture above you can see the "pig foraged" area to the left, and the untouched area to the right.  I'll move that fence to the right to allow them to clear that area, too.  What they don't eat they like to tear out of the ground and make beds of out.   

 Nothing a pig likes more than going and taking a nap in a comfy bed with a full stomach and a friend

30 pigs clear about a half-acre a day.  To the dirt if I leave them there.  I'll be discing and planting this area with the winter cover crop when I move the pigs off of it.
