Petunia the Pig, social media’s favorite pig, was getting ready for the show ring this weekend. Thomas Titus, an Illinois pig farmer and one of the USFRA’s “Faces of Farming and Ranching” winners, showed a #RealPigFarming update that may be surprising for most consumers.
In his update, he showed Petunia chowing down on cake mix.
“Cake mix that is sometimes when pigs go to a new place and the water tastes a bit different than home (city vs well) a pig may be a bit finicky at dinner time so Kaleb added some sweet stuff because really, who doesn't like dessert before dinner,” Thomas explained later on Facebook.
#RealPigFarming is a social media campaign sponsored by the National Pork Board. It encourages the nation’s pork producers to share photos and experiences online using the hashtag, #RealPigFarming. Click here for more
