    These are the two Hereford gilts that I just got for breeding stock. They are about 50 lbs. They are very vocal and always come up to talk to me but they don't let me pet them yet.

    Really nice photos. And great idea with the hay feeder :)

    50 pounds? Are you sure? They look much larger than that. My 8 week old piglets are about 40 - 45 right now.

    You know I'm still not a very good judge of pig weight yet. They were pretty easy to pick up. But then again I'm no wimp and the lady I bought them from was helping me put them in the pen.

    I'm thinking the AI took. No signs of heat yet and she should of come into heat on Monday. We'll have some nice Moneyshot babies come september if all goes well.
