    Hello!!

    We have a home on a full acre. Half of that land is somewhat steep and wooded. We were considering fencing it is and raising a couple of pigs for our family to eat. I do not fore see us ever having more than two at one time and do not care how much they root around out there.

    So my questions are:

    1) What type of fencing would you recommend for half an acre to keep the pigs contained?

    2) Do you have any good books/websites you can recommend for a first-time pig farmer? :)

    Thank you!
