Puerto Rico Chapter Pig Farm Visit

Puerto Rico Chapter Pig Farm Visit

On November 8th we went to a pig farm in the town of Moca to work with pigs. We injected supplemental iron, tattooed their ears, castrated and weaned the pigs. It was a great learning experience for both the candidates and the old members because some of them had never worked with pigs. After a hard day of work working with almost 90 pigs we went to eat and shared some of our stories with this year’s candidates.
