Black circles

We have a red hog that is one year old and a Duroc he weighs about 700 lbs. He is a pet and roams the property freely. On his skin he has developed black a little crusty circles to this date he has 4 of them 2 of them on his side and the other 2 back on his rear. We were bathing him and actually saw worms inside one of the circles it was like they were popping in and out which was distressing him. We do worm periodically with ivermectin and when we saw this immediately wormed him again but they are still there and seem to be growing. What is this and how do we treat it Thank You

Mixed company in the barn yard

I have 3 goats, 1-whether and 2 does, 2 mini donkeys, 1-gelding and a jenny. and a pot-bellied pig. They each have a stall but mix during the day. Most of the time they get along but the goats butt the pig sometimes, the donkeys occassionally bite at each other and the pig will charge the donkeys if too close to his food. They all get lots of love and touching from me and sometimes I think they are all jealous at times. Is it OK to have them together?.What is normal behavior...is some aggression normal? Also how can I be more involved wirh OSU and small farms. Thank you!
