For those who are curious: Where do these stillborn pigs come from? Well, given pigs have large litters, there are always some offspring that die at birth due to things like suffocation, a knot in the umbilical cord, and failure to thrive for other health reasons. Normally they are a waste product, but we are able to collect them for educational purposes. Only animals that die of natural causes are used.


"Thank you so much for the recent delivery of stillborn pigs. We have only dissected one of the larger ones so far (the rest are for next week), but I just wanted to say how favourably it was received. Not only was it particularly clean and odourless, but the teacher who did the dissection was delighted to be able to dissect out the umbilical vein, something he had never seen before.

I hope you will continue to stock the pigs as we are sure to buy more in future.”
