Creative farmer Erik Stegink, who resides in the Netherlands, decided to increase the entertainment his animals were experiencing by adding some pig slides. The bizarre addition was a huge hit with his curious pigs as in no time the animals were sliding down the contraption into the mud.
If there is one thing to say about this strange story it's that Stegink is definitely a farmer who thinks outside the box. As wacky as it sounds to try an increase a pig's entertainment, there are some facts that make the idea a bit more logical. As saddening as it is to say this, an animal that experiences less stress will evidently produce a better quality meat. Not that I support the harvesting of animals for food, but the idea of pig slides is actually a fairly brilliant idea.
