The Pig Mobile

The Pig Mobile is a glassed-in traveling display unit that holds a sow and piglets as well as other pigs at various stages of development. It allows the students to see pigs up close without the biosecurity concerns of an on-farm visit.

 

The Pig Mobile is currently on-hold due to COVID-19 concerns.
