Another interesting factoid on the pigs. The three pigs are males and they have not been castrated. In the US, I believe that it is common practice to cut the pigs if they are being raised for meat. Here, they do not cut them and believe that helps them gain weight quicker. They say that if you harvest the pig before they get too big (about 100 kg), there will be no effect on the flavor of the meat.
So know you know!
