At Don Bosco Children and Life Mission (CALM) we have a new modernized piggery which can accommodate up to 100 pigs. Already 50 rooms are available. Good conditions including water and electricity are provided in the new piggery.  Until now, all the pigs are smartly cared for. No complaints at all. Their cleanliness is incomparable due to the fact that our pigs take shower obligatorily thrice a day.  All the pigs, from   big to the small ones have ear tags in view of their easy identification. Our pigs are now naughty because they make noise all the time despite the new building they are enjoying.
