Pigs are omnivores, because they can eat plants as well as animals, but their diet is mostly corn or soybeans. A pig can give birth to 8 to 13 piglets at a time. Sows can give birth twice a year.

Pigs love mud, mud baths help pigs to cool their bodies whenever there is heat. Mud can lower a pig’s temperature by up to 3.6 degrees Celsius. The cooling effect lasts longer when the pig is wallowing in the mud than in the water.
