Piggery dry feeding vs wet feeding

Wet feeding is when farmers mix food with water. Dry feeding is when pigs are given feed that is not mixed with water. When practicing a dry feeding you must make sure you also provide them with water. Many famers will dry feed a pig, when it is ready to be sold they will start to wet feed it, they believe that the pig will gain a big stomach when given wet feed. The advantage of a wet feeding system is that digestibility is improved.
