A farmer in Ningxiang, in China, claims teaching his pigs to dive from a 3m platform has made them fitter, happier and tastier. Report by Matt Blake.
One Chinese pig farmer says he has an usual way to produce better tasting bacon. Huang Demin of Ningxiang county in Hunan province makes his pigs dive, every day, from a roughly 10-foot-tall wooden platform into a pond.
China Daily writes that Huang believes the diving improves the pigs' immunity against disease, enabling them to eat more and grow faster. The quality of the pork, he claims, is greatly improved as a result.
Whether or not that's true, we can't deny that a sty's-worth of diving pigs makes for quite a spectacle. Not that they seem to enjoy it; Huang has to push the pigs forcefully before they're willing to jump. The amount of squealing in the video seems to confirm that -- but Huang says they love it in the end. He sells the meat for three times the price of a normal pig.
