What does it take to breed pigs? Is it a bit more work than raising feeder pigs? What's the best way to start with raising breeder pigs? Pasturing em? Confining em? I've raised feeder pigs for two years now I'm thinking about raising pigs and sell em locally. We have about 2-3 acres of wooded/rock fields that I was thinking about putting to use and raising pigs on it. I'd like to use electric fence and do rotation grazing type method to keep cost down on feed. Would 1 boar and 2 sows be a good start? I'm not looking to having too many pigs running around as I have cattle to take care of also. I'm able to get free bread from a bakery, milk from my cow, and eggs from my chickens & ducks and hopefully will be able to get produce from local groceries to feed to the pigs. Would this work on keeping feed cost down? Any tips/advice I should know before doing anything. I don't plan on getting em til next year and learning a bit more. Anything helps. Ivan.
