I can tell they have growed even since the last picture. They are looking good. Those Yorkshires suppose to be leaner meat than other hog breeds as that is the kind I would want.

Not sure why but the old timers would give them a few chunks of coal. I'm thinking to worm them. They sure liked it. Chewed it up fast.

That is why ashes were fed to pigs as well.

The carbon in the coal will also help to neutralize their gut tract. Carbon is fed to many animals to help neutralize any toxins in their system. Have fed it to baby calves to help with digestion and such.

I have been told that it can be used by humans. You need to find someone who is knowledgeable in homeopathic - natural -medicines and such. I Just don't know that much about it as far as a human use. But I have heard that if a person has swallowed or eaten some toxins, that charcoal will help to bind it so that it is not absorbed by the intestines. I am not well versed in it but have been trying to learn more about different types of "treatments" . If you think about it and have any knowledge of tropical fish, all the filters use a 2 stage type filter. There is a filter material (used to be fiberglass years ago but now is a man made fluffy material) that traps the physical matter, and charcoal/carbon that the water filters through to purify it before going back into the tank.

At one time several coal deep miners around here. I am sure they eat a lot of coal dust and it may have helped their gut, but it sure doesn't help their lungs when they breath the dust in.

@JMJ you can google carbon use in livestock and find articles about the activated charcoal and how it will neutralize poison in the system.... I think I saw some in a paste form at TSC or our local feed store recently.
