    The EQUITY COOP Sale in Stratford, WI runs both feeder pigs and butcher Hogs on a regular basis. If you are not near Stratford, they have several other locations. Feeder Pigs are currently bouncing between 90 cents and a dollar a pound.

    Where in Wisconsin, or how far are you wiling to drive? I know a couple of certified organic producers if you are interested in going that route.

    There is always some risk anywhere you purchase livestock. Ultimately, you have to purchse where you feel most comfortable with your decision.

    Is one of my favorite resources. Check 'classifieds' and 'livestock'. There are usually a couple of pig producers advertising.

    Actually, while looking up this link for you, I found a couple of ads in my area, I might get a couple of pigs now! :p

    Good luck! :)
