Dr. Turner Welcomes Piglets to the Nursery
Dr. Matthew Turner of North Carolina prepares a herd of three-week-old piglets to be weaned from their mothers and transitioned to dry feed and water. He explains that raising pigs in the barn will protect them from environmental risks and provide them warm, comfortable, draft-free housing and plenty of natural feed and water for them to grow. He also ensures that the staff is adhering to the farm's animal welfare policy that he authored and instituted, and shares his pride in their attention to animal welfare.
