Been thinking about getting me a sow and a boar and raising young ones off of them. I've raised many pigs for slaughter but have never raised for breeding purposes. Will the weeners pay for the feed bill? How much daily feed for the boar and sow? Do I need to keep them in seperate pens all the time? Or just when the sow furrows? A lot of times at the local sale barn they run whole litters of weening aged piglets through for people to buy the whole litter if wanted. Would that be a cheaper way of raising them? Sometimes they go for around $12 - $15 dollars a head. That would be highest bidder takes all.
