I am looking for information on pig farming in Newfoundland. Are there any Newfoundlanders who could answer some questions for me?

The reason I was asking is I'm a Newfoundlander myself and was wondering if I could make a go at pig farming there.

My Hubby is a newfie, who used to grow a little garden every year. I know bunches of newfies, plus we go up there at least once a year. What do you want to know? BTW, nice irish name, there Doyle.

I would think that you could do anything there, as long as you kept them warm. I am learning that, living in Maine. Everything has to take advantage of the sun energy. If you built a roof that would take advantage of the heat of the sun, they would be fine. I don't know about the snow, though. Sounds like you'd need a big barn or butcher everything before the bad snow starts.

My DH was in the USAF and stationed in Newfie at a Radio base in the early 60's. They were on red alert for Nam but did not have to go. He still likes to talk like they do now and then. He has good memories of Newfoundland.
