After reading this months MENS about the beef problems..again..we thought perhaps we should make our little homestead more efficient for us. So...we thought with our limited amount of land..5 acres..a couple of pigs might just be the ticket. Thought of a beef cow, milking cow (to raise and sell), but really don't have the pasture for either one right now. Will be looking and reading up on the type of pigs and housing that we will need for our new adventure. But does anyone have a experiences..good or bad..that would help us along our way. We have a house where we use to have our bucks that we will use with an ouside pen area for them to get the fresh air and sun..realize that we will probably have to re-enforce the fencing. Any ideas or help on the type of pigs to get or other help would be appreciated !! Thanks !! (presently raise dairy goats and am thining of not selling the young bucks this year but putting them into the freezer as we have done in the past when the family was still with us, don't really get much $$ for them anyway at the auction and of course raising a few meat chickens with our layers too)
