    Hello to all,I am wondering what are the prices of: full grown pig ready for sale(live weight),after slaughter,and the price of 20 kg pig-here in Balkans this category is quite often asked for weddings,newyears day,etc..(The pig is slaugthered,baked and it is served whole).The prices here are:full grown pig-2 $ for 1 kg,after slaugtering-2 $ and 80 cents,and for a 20 kg pig-3 $ for 1kg.

    We sell:

    Finisher (full grown 225 lbs live weight, ~130 lbs cuts) $350 delivered to the butcher

    Boar piglets $65 in the winter/spring/summer ($10 less in the fall)

    Gilt or Barrow piglets $75 in the winter/spring/summer ($10 less in the fall)

    20 Kg (44 lb) is about $10 more but then there is the cost of slaughter and dehairing which ads about $50 I think (I don't do it).

    They're weaner piglets at about 4 to 6 weeks. Weights vary accordingly.
