Ive heard of goats eating kudzu before, but will pigs? Also can goats and pigs happily share a common pen?

My hogs dig up and consume the roots and my goats eat the leaves. I actually move them often from the field where the kudzu is to allow it to recover.

I've run hogs and goats together but have had problems in the past with a big boar goat or hog annoying the ever living snot out of the opposite species in an overly friendly manner. (if you know what I mean)

We had a billy goat once that tried that whole, "annoy-the-piss-out-of-him-and-he-will-let-me-have-first-dibs-on-all-goodies-that-come-over-the-fence play" with a bull. It worked.

Then the billy goat tried that whole, "annoy-the-piss-out-of-her-and-she-will-let-me-have-first-dibs-on-all-goodies-that-come-over-the-fence play" with our sow. The sow tasted goat just once. We heard the fool screaming but unfortunately only arrived on scene in time to see the floppy eared old sow standing there with a tuft of white hair in her mouth and the billy topping the hill in an all-out sprint.

It was then that I fell in love with keeping pigs.

When the Billy finally worked up the nerve to return three days later, he was well mannered and remained so from then on.
