This litter is now 2 weeks old, and all of them are sold/spoken for. Castrated the males today, and there is one female I think I'll be keeping for future breeding purposes.

They are so playful at this age.....throw in some fresh straw and they have a blast playing in it....looks like it plum wore em out.

Do you raise them to a certain size and send them to the butcher or do you send them to the new home at a young age.
Both.....One person wants to buy 4 when they weigh 40 lbs. (feeder pigs) and feed them out themselves. 2 people want me to raise them to slaughter size and buy them when butchered. I need 2 for my family for meat and the final one may be kept for breeding purposes.

Blanche has been a excellent "mama" in all of this.

Did you trim their teeth? We usually did as their sharp little incisors will cut Blanch's teets as they get bigger. Where is Pigsitter when we need him!!!!!

If just the mention of castration makes you want to :eck16:

Then, don't watch this.

Okay the teeth castration guy is a weirdo. No offense if you are in to that kinda thing but that is just plain old weird.

I didn't think Mike Rowe was an idiot. I figured he was reasonably bright, but I didn't peg him for book-smart. Wow.
