Hey to all new to the group, Here goes nothing, I need to know what you guys think of hogs on the ground versus Hog on a rasied platform? I also need to know any suggestion on space for three feeder pigs I am getting in about six to eight weeks? I have the book by Dirk Van Loon "Small Scale Pig Farming" and a whole mess of others but I need the advice of veterans. I am planning on rasing these far from the house under some harwoods that I have a water spicket near for the shade and drainage. I plan on having a few strips of sodd that fell of a truck delivering them to a golf course That I scavanged off the highway last week. I want to build the hog pen out of saw timber (slabbs) and some Power poles that are too short for my pole barn I am putting up as the corners and metal roofing left over from my chicken pens. Any other ways you would have done it or am I leaving anything out? Sorry it was so long. Adios from SC.
