Hi all! First I want to tell everyone that I'm happy to have found this board. It is exactly what I was looking for. After looking around a bit I decided that this is the place to "ask the experts" my questions. I've raised chickens, and turkeys for meat and keep about 50 laying chickens year round, but this is my rookie year with pigs. Questions: 1. How old should the piglets be when they are weaned/sold? 2. Should they be a certain weight when taken from the sow and sold to me to raise for butchering? 3. Exactly how determined are they to try to escape from their pen? I have an area fenced for my pygmy goats that I'd like to use, that is about 100ft long and 50 feet wide and plan on putting 5 pigs in there. I'm moving the goats to a new feeding area for them to clean out the underbrush there. 4. When should I worm them and is there any other medicines, vaccinations of stuff like that I need to do? I don't plan on breeding or keeping them around after they hit about 235 lbs. Thanks for your time and your help. I'm sure that I'll have lots more to ask once my babies get here Saturday.
