    I've been looking about getting some feeder pigs to breed and for the freezer, how hard are pigs to breed? and about how many piglets?

    JMO if you are just getting them to eat, just buy piglets and raise them yourself.
    That is what we are doing. Do your research they need farrowing crates for the piglets to be safe so the mama doesn't roll on them after birth.
    We have a female pot belly who is 6 and when she is in heat she is mean as she can be.
