In the future (not now, as it's not feasible) I would like to raise pigs; this would be for food. Is it really worth the investment of raising pigs to raise them for food? The reason I would like to do so is simply because anyway I can cut corners with a grocery bill, I'm all game. I'm very frugal by nature. The other reason is because it just seems like an interesting idea. What do pigs eat? Can you make feed yourself for them or do have to buy feed commercially for them? How many pigs would you recommend starting out raising? Is it possible to raise pigs and have it turn out economically for you in the long run? By this I mean by raising your own meat (via raising pigs) is it going to help you reduce your grocery budget? Is this feasible or not? If not, why not please?
