Em’s Adventures: Hog Farm

TCL is going Hog Wild and Emily is taking us on a family farm in Northfield to see what it takes to keep the hogs healthy and happy.

Chris Peterson and his family have been farming for decades. He says making sure the barn is clean and temperature controlled is just one part of his daily job. He also makes sure the pigs are getting the right nutrients, food, and plenty of water.

Food safety is so important that limiting who can go into the area with the pigs is key. There is also special attire and cleaning that needs to be done before you enter the area.
