How Are Pigs Connected to Jumbo Jets?

Friday 17th March 11:00AM – 11:45AM

Join us to meet Flavian the pig farmer and his clever pig dog, Rex, and learn how they look after their team of pigs to keep them happy and healthy. We’ll be learning all about how pigs both affect and are affected by their environment and we’ll hopefully get to meet the newest arrivals on the farm as soon as they are born.
