Series 7: 6. Royal Welsh Show - Pigs



Morgan and Tasha have only been pig farmers for a couple of years, but with over 100 pigs on their rented land near Prestatyn, they definitely mean business. However, funding their young farm is a constant concern. As first timers at the Royal Welsh Show, they want their Duroc pigs to turn the judge’s head, in particular their favourite boar, Sully. \n\nMeanwhile, Amanda’s farm near Abergavenny is home to her beloved Saddleback pigs. Looking after her latest litter of curious piglets is a full-on task, but she is passionate about rearing the best of breed and is a past master in the competition ring. She also wants rosette wins at the Royal Welsh to seal her reputation as a pedigree breeder.\n\nShow day brings the hottest temperature ever recorded in Wales, and the pigs need to be kept cool and comfortable while the farmers weather an unpredictable day of judging.
