    I am looking into raising meat hogs. I am looking for information on how to build an enclosure, what breed, should I start with an already bred sow, or piglets? Also if you could post photos of your enclosures that would be amazing [​IMG]

    Thank You

    Your best bet is to go on amazon.com and buy a book on raising pigs. You can find out everything you need to know that way. Also, visit your local agricultural extesion office. They should have some information available. Check out the pamphlets they have for 4H hog projects too.
