Why Do Pigs Love Mud Baths?

All pigs deserve to be happy and nothing (besides food) brings them greater joy than luxuriating in a mud hole.Pigs are also highly intelligent.  In case you’re wondering why pigs are so drawn to bathing in the mud, here are three reasons:

  1. Pigs have no sweat glands, so they immerse themselves in mud baths to cool down their body temperatures.

 

  1. To prevent sunburn, pigs cover their skin with mud.

 

  1. By coating themselves with mud, pigs stay free of parasites.

A fine day at the spa!
