I have a one year old gilt that I've had NO success identifying stud service to impregnate. I am continuing to consider AI but am as "green" as they come in this area and am finding no vets in the area willing to take on the task. *sigh* Anyhow, I don't want my gal to continue to live alone and so I'm considering obtaining a boar. I like the idea of obtaining a very young pig because I like the personality better when my animals are raised by me from a young age. I realize he'll be no good for breeding until much later, but I'm concerned about placing a very young male with an already adult female with regard to safety, practicality, and on and on. Just don't know and am wondering if it's the right thing to do. Can some of you who know more let me know if you'd only add an adult male? OR if a baby male is okay, what is the best way to introduce the little guy to my 632 lb Yorkshire Gilt so that they have the best chance of getting along? Thanks!
