Recently the Suffield High School Agriscience Department welcomed some baby piglets! The production animal science classes had the opportunity to monitor and care for two sows (female pigs) that were due to have piglets. The pigs are owned by Brittani Burke, who is a senior in the agriscience program and raises cows, sheep and pigs at her farm. The piglets were born and the students have been able to assist with their postnatal care and have learned more about the swine industry through this hands-on experience.
