Photo of the day: Gut feeling

#RealPigFarming touches all aspects of the pork industry, including those sixth sense moments pig farmers have.

Thomas Titus, an Illinois pork producers and one of the USFRA's "Faces of Farming and Ranching" winners, shared one of those moments.

As he explained, it was the "moment you're halfway home and get that feeling in your stomach, 'maybe I should check on that sow 1 last time,' even though 5 minutes ago you were convinced she was finished having piglets. Chalk up a +1 for this guy! One more healthy (and huge) York gilt that may not have welcomed tomorrow is sure glad I did come back for her!"

#RealPigFarming is a social media campaign sponsored by the National Pork Board. It encourages the nation's pork producers to share photos and experiences online using the hashtag, #RealPigFarming.
