Is there anyone out there that knows where I can buy a pig in Arkansas that I can take to the slaughter house.

Thanks

I live in central Arkansas (Little Rock area), but would be willing to go out to wherever I can find a pig. We would like to fill our freezer with fresh pork.

Ok, we are located near Ft. Smith so that is out. We have our butcher who sell on the hoof animals butt it is too far for you to travel I'm sure.

Call a co-op near you, call the local sale barns near you and also try the small local feed store or feed mill and they will probably know some one who sells live hogs. Also the local small store or the auto repair shops.
You are looking at the right time as many people sell at the end of the season.
Try these people, I'm sure they know of someone.

HOGS, 2 males, 6 weeks old. $50 each. Call for more information 501-316-6537

I just sold mine for $0.60 lb on the hoof. They weighed between 225 and 260 lbs each. this will give you some idea os to the price.

Now if all else fails the University of Arkansas is selling theirs for 0.65 per lb last time I heard. Try a cooperative agent near you and they should be able to help.

We are in north central AR and have a few larger ones and piglets available. If interested PM me. Might possibly be able to deliver.
