We have 3 farrowing pens and 5 12'x8' stalls as well as 4 small older pens.We have enough space to have 3 groups of 3 sows and 3 grower pens.I plan to cull heavily to end up with 6 sows to produce breeder gilts and 3 sows to produce boars
I am going to need half a doz good farrows before I would consider expanding. The pigs need to support themselves.
