    Pastured Boars For Sale or Trade

    I have three excellent intact young boars born late last summer. They are currently between 250 and 300 lbs (by eye). These are from our herd which is primarily Yorkshire, long bodied, well tempered and thrives on pasture. There is a little bit of Glouster Old Spot and Tamworth in our pigs as ever once in a while we get a spotted or colored piglet. Two of the boars are white, one is white with black spots. They are ready to perform.

    I would like to get another boar as we'll need to eventually replace our big boar. I would trade these boars for several smaller boar weaners that I can then raise and pick the best of. Rough weight exchange or cash to make up the difference. If you have some fine intact young weaner boars you would like to trade or are simply interested in purchasing a boar please let me know.

    Note, I do not ship live animals. This is a trade or sale for someone within a reasonable drive.

    Cheers,

    Walter Jeffries

    Walter, just to say hi and let you know the two piglets are doing great! The only problem with Sunshine and Puerco is they are too cute (I should NOT have asked for the cutest spotted ones :rolleyes: ) and I worry about doing the deed when the time comes. I'm very happy I got them from you.

    *grin* Glad to hear they are doing well. You did pick particularly cute piglets from the bunch. Don't let dinner worm its way into your heart so far that you can't eat it!
