Have you ensured that you have permission to keep pigs? This is particularly important if you are a tenant, Council or private, but also for mortgaged/owned properties there are sometimes restrictions in the deeds. You must make sure you have permission, because we rehome pigs regularly due to they or their family being threatened with eviction. It is not something to take lightly! Also, it is a very good idea to check with your neighbours because another fairly frequent reason for pigs being rehomed is due to complaints from neighbours over smell and/or noise. If there are horses next door, check with their humans because horses can be scared of pigs and again we have been asked to help pigs because the neighbours' horses were too scared to go in the adjoining field.
