Somebody today offered us $10/pig to house them while they are finished. I will be asking him many questions, but I wanted to get some other views too. He will provide the feed, I would need to give them food and water. We have a retired pig farm, so it shouldnt be too hard to get ready. I'm not sure if our feeders work though, we tried one and it sounded like it got stuck. He said he would do any training thats neccessary. I think it would be great, $2000, and it would mostly cost me sweat. Problem is I have a PT job, I will be taking 15 or so credits in college, plus we have our own animals, not too many yet. I really think I could learn a lot with it, plus pick up quite a bit of money. From the table posted in the thread it sounds like 5 lbs per day per pig is about how much feed they eat (looking towards the top of the table). So that would be 1000 lbs of food per day total. If I can get the feeders working, no dout I would do it. 1000 lbs per day is a lot, but today I loaded/unloaded/stacked about 100 bales. This would be at least 4000 lbs per time. What do you all think about it? Water would be comming out of a hose in that building, so that wouldnt be a problem.
