I just called on an ad is out local shopper for 40-50#feeder pigs for $35 each. I was curious, so I called. Up until this point I have been tending a small flock of sheep, laying hens and meat chickens. I am thinking that a couple of pigs may not be too much to add... I have a pen in a large barn that is 5x10 feet. There is water and electricity in the barn. The floor is concrete. I have plenty of hay and have access to feed. What I need is words of wisdom. Am I going to regret this? THe person selling them says they should be ready to butcher around March. I do not forsee difficulty selling them, and would be thrilled to have a half a hog in my own freezer. PLEASE-input would be appreciated before tomorrow, as they will be calling back. Thanks for the time. This is such a great wource of info! Oh yeah-We live in northern Wisconsin-land of cold and snow. Happy solstice.
