My husband was all for having a few feeder pigs once we get all of our fences fixed and the barn up. After talking to his Grandad (who seems to think everything we do is "silly"), he seems to think that pigs need to be sent to a butcher, and that it won't be worth us keeping. My question, how hard is it to butcher a pig? My husband isn't worrried about anything but skinning the pig. He has experience with deer, but has been told that he'll need to scald and scrape the pig, even without keeping the skin. His grandad also told him that getting the skin off the pig is very difficult. Honestly, it seems like he just wants us to avoid the work, but doesn't realize that this is a lifestyle of work, and we're okay with that.
