Where can I buy pigs in the Southeast Missouri Area ?
Besides the sale barns. Thanks.
You might check at your local feed stores, they could tell you who raises them in your area.
Just an idea.
pigneeder i live in the area and was wondering is there a reason you dont
want to buy from the sale barns?
The reason a lot of people do not want to buy livestock at a sales barn is that they many times are sick animals.
I have bought some sick animals from the sale barn, and heard of alot of other stories. But it seems to get harder to find person to person pigs for sale. Most only want to sell full grown hogs. I would like to get 40 pounders or so. 1 to 4 pigs. I may have to goto the sale barn. Usually about 50/50 luck with sale barns, maybe I will get 2 good out of 4.
Look in the classified ads. We have a free classified paper "Its Classified" in our area and there are always piglet and sometimes pig ads in there. Also check the bulletin boards at the farm and grain stores, local general stores, coop food stores, etc. That is where we hang our posters selling pigs and piglets. I sold one this after noon that came from a poster at a gardening store.
Personally I would avoid the sales and auctions. I would prefer being able to see the animals where they were raised up and see the sows and other piglets in the litters if possible. You can learn a lot from that.
We have a litter due at the end of the month if you can wait awhile till they are weened close to Christmas.
The next one is due in December so they should be ready in Feb.
Where in Mo are you?
I live about half way between Cape Girardeau and Sikeston.
You're not too far from me then. Would you be interested in some feeders around mid-late December?
Yes , thanks.
If possible I would probably want 2 in December,
and maybe 2 more in Feburary.
If you want to PM me with the price I would appreciate it.
