The tens of thousands of years of natural selection, eliminates Or lowers the chance of behaviorally picky feeders in nature.

The rifle thing was again argumentative and useless as you did not mention why that hunter liked a 22 over and 243 and there are many reasons he may prefer his choice. A naïve person simply thinks there the same. An experienced poacher, knows they are different. I don't hunt game. I like weapons, mostly primitive weapons.

If there was an inbred line of hogs like condas that was troublesome, and if there was a pattern of this problem. It would be one thing. But that is not whats happening.
Its a problem of beginers with very few animals and its common with UNRELATED individual hogs.

Next, the recipe husbandry promoted these days is very very restrictive(shoebox) With the least amount of room for error, As the cages are so small, there is no room to allow the animal to have choices or better yet individual choices. If the keeper gets it right, exactly right, it works. If not exactly right, you end up with these problems.
I like to use Gregg as an example, a good one, because he uses rack systems, but modifies them to improve performance of his hogs. And hes not above testing something that may help his animals. As he did with nesting earlier this year.
What we have here is keeper mentality. Some keepers accept the responsibility that all that happens in their cages, is their RESPONSIBILITY, good or bad. Then you have keepers(egotistic, narcissistic), in this case it means, they cannot be wrong, so its the animals fault. They believe they did what they were told to do. So they are right. The problem is, its not about right or wrong. ITs about how well the animal does, PERIOD. The reality of keeping is, its not about who told you or what you have done in the past, its about THAT animals performance. And day to day, as you can be WRONG at any time. End part 1
