My oldest daughter stopped by to see me today and asked if I wanted to raise some pigs to butcher. She said a lady she knows is going to give her some free baby pigs is she wants them. My daughter lives in town so she can't raise them so she wants me to raise them and I can have one to process for myself. She even said she would help buy feed for them. I agreed. I got to thinking that if we are lucky maybe one of them will make a good show pig for one of my youngest daughter who will be in the clover buds next school year. Hope they will not be too big by then cause they will be around 6 months old. My daughter will only be 6 years old by then. Pig may be too big for her to handle by then. But I have another daughter who will be 10 by next fall, if I could only get her interested. So I need to ask some you current pig raisers a question. The little piggies are only a couple weeks old right now. How big should they be by the time the first pig judging contest rolls around come next September? Do you thing that would be too big for a 6 year old girl to handle? If so, then I may just take them straight to the butcher shop at the end of summer.
