    Most pigs hate the actual white part of the cauliflour you will find though that most love the leaves,my boys love them,just make sure little bits every now and then as it can bring on bloat in high amounts

    All mine love the leaves, but only some of them like the flowery bit. x
     
  4. Same here so I cook the flower for the humans and the piggys get the leaves.

    I have a question…..

    I nab the free cauliflower leafage from Morrisons when they put it out sometimes and the last lot I got had like a white residue on and I was wondering what it was and if it can do them any harm. I was thinking maybe the leaves sweated as it was hot weather and it’s just some sort of natural change the leaves did. They were fresh feeling, not limp and bendy and the rodents liked them. I take it cauliflowers aren’t covered in dangerous level of pesticides are they? [​IMG] Any knowledge would be appreciated.
