My pig won't eat ANY hay if there is enough grass. The second there isn't "enough" grass to satisfy him, he'll eat whatever grass he can find and then plow through the hay. Doofus won't even touch Alfalfa if he has grass!
It's not the quality of the hay either because when you go to take him out of the pasture he will grab as much of the hay as he possibly can on his way out the gate. Literally, he'll grab like 2 flakes worth and carry it to his stall, drop the pile and then start eating it.
