Neighbor to my Grandpa always had hogs in with his beef cattle. Never could figure that one out, but I saw it with my own two eyes!

Cows fed corn will not digest all of the corn. It was common practice to run hogs in with corn fed cattle to utilize the lost protein. Before the weak stomached non farm raised people along with the need for the media having something to turn into a story, it was not a big deal.

Pigs are they eat shxx. Reason is to gain access to B vitamins. When slat floors became popular, deficiencies were noted cuz the pigs were too clean and did not have access to enough fecal matter. Thus rations had to be adjusted for higher levels of B vitamins.

When you put hogs in the cattle lot, they survive on the cattle waste. If the pigs grew up with the sheep would probably be ok. And then again might be dinner!
