Pigs

Pigs have returned to Moelyci!  If you’re interested in being part of the pig group for 2017 please get in touch.

From last years successful trial:

Moch Mariad

  • 6 Piglets came to Moelyci from Minffordd, near Porthmadog, first week in September, aged 10 and a half weeks.
  • 15 members of the community bought into the pigs, to feed water and care for them.  One of the member was Blas Lôn Las.
  • Various investors paid in to sort out fencing, feeding, visiting, and building sheds.
  • Pigs were turned into sausages and meat at the end of November. Some of which ended up in the shop!

Wedi Dysgu! Things we Learned!

  • Dydi o ddim yn hawdd, ond ddim yn anodd chwaith! It’s not easy, but not difficult either!
  • Moch Cymreig yn neud yn dda/ Welsh Pigs work well
  • Amserlen bwydo gwell ei angen/ Tighter feeding timetable, and more “Feeders” needed
  • Angen sortio dŵr mewn cafn/ need to sort a proper water trough
  • Angen torri’r a pecynnu’r cig yn well!/ Better arrangements needed for cutting/ packing the meat
  • Angen rhoi’r moch I mewn wythnos cyn mynd/ Need to put the pigs in a shed a week before taking to slaughter
  • LLawer iawn o Hwyl!/ a Lot of Fun!
