Okay, I have to admit, I've never raised any porcine type of animals or pigs of any kind. Having said that, I've read some fine information on this forum about keeping and feeding pigs on a farmstead. I'de like to know what you all might have to relay on experience with knowing about and keeping the leanest breeds of pigs that can easily be gotten from domestic sources? Please if you can give your account rather than referring to too many outside links. Also, consider that living in a cold climate 2b for keeping pigs over winter and keeping feed cost minimal. A building/barn and pasture available, though not yet fenced. Utilization of gardening program for feed is in my interest to consider. Thanks.
