Today, there are over one hundred breeds of the domesticated pig. The Oxford Sandy and Black, the Berkshire, and the American Yorkshire, are all popular pig breeds, just to name a few. Which type of pigs are your favorite? Do you know how to tell...

That's a three percent increase in pigs and hogs relative to last year. Believe it or not, our nearby neighbors to the north of me in Georgia have the second most pigs: North Carolina comes in with more than nine million pigs and hogs of their own, though that's less than half of the number one state in Iowa.  
There's a cool YouTube video out right now with a pig saving a baby goat from drowning, believe it or not.

When you watch the video, I've got to say I am really impressed with how it all worked out and what came from it - it is definitely cool and touching to see that little pig swim over and save the goat from maybe drowning or at least being stuck for quite some time.
