What do pigs eat?

Most pigs in Ohio are fed corn and soybeans which is supplemented with vitamins and minerals. Contrary to popular belief, pigs don’t eat table scraps (slop).  A pig’s diet, or ration, is carefully calculated by a nutritionist. Due to research and our understanding of the animal’s needs, often times gilts (females) and barrows (males) are fed special rations to adapt to their lifestyle.
