Have a go at pig handling

June 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Have a go handling a pig – there’s a technique to it, but will you crack it? It’s brilliant fun to watch and take part in.

Island pig expert, David Groves, says: “Training pigs for the show ring takes many months of preparation to get to the standard that you’ll see today. However pigs are highly intelligent and will remember everything you teach them. If you would like to have a go at pig handling today, one of our exhibitors will be available to guide you. Or if you have any questions about these delightful animals, our experts will be only too happy to oblige.”

You can also:

  • Talk to their owners and find out about pig keeping.
  • Get up close to the animals.
