      What do you consider Natural or Organic?  My family raised pigs growing up.  We did not give them shots or hormones.  We feed them corn(Harmony) that we grew.  Sorghum stalks and whatever was leftover from the kitchen table.  I am sure I can shed some light on it for you.
      This was in the south(alabama).

        We pasture pigs on an organic open field and at wood edge where they
        also get tons of acorns and hickory nuts in the Fall.
        We feed no corn. In the Winter they get only kamut (our bread grain)
        and bushels of frozen apples.
        They are very wild. These are the happiest pigs you could want to see.
        We have a harvest ritual wherein we ask them to guide us to who among
        them can share their lives to become our food.
        They are very delicious.

        They are also very good watch animals. The pigs are very protective
        of our older dog. The coyotes never enter their field.

              Housing for our pigs was a small little shed with over hang to give them relief from the rain.  Again weather was not an issue.  I grew up in Alabama.  It does not get very cold.  The pen was constructed around many oak trees.  So they have plenty acorns and such to eat.  We did not have any problems with scale.  Why because they were able to rut in the mud.  We all know that pigs that are raised this way do not have to be treated with antibiotic to prevent. 
              There is a bacteria in the dirt that the pig must have to prevent this disorder.  That is why you will see your little piglets eating dirt and alot of it.  Put commerically grown housed pigs must be treated.  The biggest problem we have was that pigs are smart and they can find a billions ways to get out of their enclosure.
