Katie's Nose Knows

Katie's Nose Knows

Whistling Train Farm

Katie checks on her babies while they stay warm under the lights. It's a bit chilly right now but they will be running back and forth and staying close to Mom.

The hog's snout is very sensitive to touch. Some producers put rings in hogs' noses to keep them from rooting, or digging up the earth, with their snouts. In the wild hogs feed themselves by digging for roots to eat. Katie will have no piercings.
