The Pig Mobile
The Pig Mobile is a glassed-in travelling display unit that holds a sow and piglets as well as other pigs at various stages of development. It allows the students to see pigs up close without the biosecurity concerns of an on-farm visit.
To book, please email Ontario Pork (early booking is recommended). Please include dates, location and expected attendance.
The Pig Mobile is a very popular exhibit and is now booked for the 2019 season. However, we would be happy to provide your event with free educational material and put you in touch with a local producer association who might be able to provide live pigs for your event. Contact Ontario Pork for more information.
