IN THE FIELDS THIS MONTH

Country Living (UK) - - Emporium -

There are about four mil­lion pigs in the UK – a quar­ter of which can be spot­ted en­joy­ing the last of the warm weather in out­door pad­docks. They’re sus­cep­ti­ble to sun­burn, so farm­ers build arced shel­ters for pro­tec­tion and main­tain muddy ar­eas, or ‘wal­lows’, where pigs can bathe, cov­er­ing them­selves with a sub­sti­tute sun cream.
