The future for little Welsh piglets by mcsiegle

The future for little Welsh piglets

Again copying from the Facebook page of Wales Week Kansas, where I just posted the following. Note to self: My project has been very populated by pigs and dinosaurs lately. Frankly, I'm getting a bit tired of their company. I think, since the official 2-week "Wales Week" period ended on the 7th, we'll spare you more promotion of Wales and all things Welsh (until next year or at least for a good long while).



While the dinosaurs were trying out some old stereoscope cards, the pigs came in with their new favorite photo of piglets from the Facebook page of The Burry Herd
"There's the future of the Pedigree Welsh Pig" said Mochyn solemnly. Maiale and Porc Coustou agreed. The next generation. The two Neanderthal women and a few dinosaurs wandered over to admire the young pigs and a serious discussion ensued regarding how to guarantee the survival of that splendid breed and other endangered and at risk breeds of Welsh livestock that The Rare Breeds Survival Trust is working to save and promote. "There's no way around it." said Porc. "We have to support, not only the herds, but also the Welsh pork businesses -- the butchers and shops."

Our three pigs were not born yesterday, They are not naive, and they understand why the farmers breed and raise the pigs. Without the pig buyer, and then the pork buyer, there is no future for pigs in Wales. Their main concern is that the pigs are treated well. A reasonable expectation we believe, and imagine you think the same.

A wonderful resource is Porc Blasus
"The home of Wales’s specialist farmers, artisan producers and master butchers of porc" There are some mighty tempting recipes on their Facebook page. On their web site, they have a directory of Welsh porc suppliers of all types. If you live in or near Wales, BUY LOCAL! You can put in your postal code and find the answer to their question. "How close is your fork to our porc?"

While we're at it, we might as well promote Welsh meat in general. Check out Hybu Cig Cymru - Meat Promotion Wales, an organization that promotes Welsh Lamb, Welsh Beef and pork from Wales.
Very enjoyable narrative!

I like the interesting information you have been providing about Wales pigs. This is a terribly creative scene with the animals viewing the photos in the stereoscope.
