Pork Fun Facts

  1. Piglets determine which of their mother’s teats they are going to drink out of within the first 24 hours. They stay with that exact teat until they are weaned.
  2. Pigs can’t sweat, so farmers provide fans and misters to help keep them cool during the summer months.
  3. Other products made from pork: Insulation, rubber, antifreeze, crayons, chalk, adhesives, and some plastics.
