Do they eat something like yogurt?
Yes, they do! It is called a "liquid feeding" to feed liquefied food. This feeding method is common in Europe.
What are the advantages of "liquid feeding"?
Even though the most common sickness for pigs is pneumonia, the ones that are fed this way have less chance of getting pneumonia.When pigs are fed dry food, the food hovers in the pigsty. It s said that sucking the hovering food causes pigs to get pneumonia.So the "liquid feeding" eliminates this worry.And also the liquefied food enhances the pigs’ digestion and cuts down the odor of their manure. If you think about it, when we are sick, humans do eat liquefied food like "porridge" too for easier digestion. There is also a theory that says liquefied food prevents from overeating because it contains lots of water and keeps your stomach full. Pigs may be fundamentally the same as humans. There is no need of antibiotics because there aren't many cases of diseases.
