I'm looking for 5 feeder right now. I did too good a job last time.
1st: Think electric fence. Even if you have regular fencing, you need the electric to keep the pigs from tearing up the regular fence.
I fed my pigs on hot mash, a cooked mixture of cracked corn and whey with leftovers and excess veggies added. I will state that I will not feed any soybeans to any animal I'm going to eat. It ruins the flavor.
Never turn your back on them . Set up your pen so you don't have to enter to feed and water. Pigs aren't mean but everything is food to them, including you. Don't forget that.
