    Re: Miranda - Our Oldest

    Thank you all for the kind words. Miranda was at least 4 years old and I am guessing she was closer to 5 years old. She had a great life once we got her so I take some solace in that.

    Re: How many pounds of hay?

    I know I go through 50lbs a month roughly in Timothy Hay for 8 pigs. The nice thing about Hay is that you can never give them to much of it.

    Re: Over weight piggys?

    Normal weights can vary. My pigs run from about 2.06 pounds to 3.08 pounds. I have 2 females that are 3+ lbs and 1 male that is 3+ lbs and every vet that has seen them has said they are healthy,...

    Re: Alternative

    Actually it was not on animals it was humans who have had the bladders grown and replaced. It was on WOSU Wired Science last night, I'll try to find a link for it.

    Re: Alternative

    LOL, it is not cloned or modified in anyway. They extract the cells, in this case the bladder, and allow them to grown and replicate and form a new bladder around a mold. The mold is taken away and...

    From time to time I have posted in this section about my hope that science can help stop the need to kill animals for food. I wanted to add a little update to this after watching WOSU tonight.
