I typically raise only gilts since they are a little easier on my pens and each other where and while I raise them. Occasionally a gilt will be in heat when butcher time comes around and we don't hestitate to proceed. Haven't been able to tell the difference in meat quality whatsoever.
Thanks for the quick reply. Sounds like I have nothing to worry about then. Thanks again.
P.S. I have about 7 left that are not spoken for and will be ready to butcher pretty quick. If anybody is Interested let me know. I have'nt advertised them yet so all my friends and family could get one that wanted one so the last 7 probly won't last long. I am in south Missouri, in ozark county.
