Jimmy Dean Juliana Pig

Gentle Giant

Jimmy Dean is the biggest and most gentle pig at Shepperly Farm. He might be a pig, but sometimes he behaves more like a dog! When it's snack time, if you call Jimmy's name, he will come running for snacks no matter where you are! He even knows how to shake- except he does it with his nose. He may be large and in charge, but don't let his size make you nervous. There is no sweeter pig anywhere!

Shepperly Farm Fun Facts

Juliana pigs are also known as mini painted pigs, and the official name is SUS Scrofa Domesticus. Although Jimmy isn't very mini these days!

They are perfect companion animals and these littles ones are easier to train than dogs! They will actually help correct your other pet's destructive behavior.

A common misconception is that pigs are sweaty, when in fact pigs can only sweat on their nose! That's why in order to escape the heat, pigs wallow around in the cool mud.

Be prepared for a long time friend, Juliana pigs can live to 20 years!

Pigs have four toes on each foot, but they only use two to walk.

China is home to the most domesticated pigs in the world, with the United States ranking 2nd. But in Denmark, there are twice as many pigs as people!

Not only are pigs very intelligent animals, but they also have a great sense of direction. They have been known to find their way home across great distances.
