    I picked up a total of 3 piggies, that were culls from the local pig nursery. In less than 7 days they would have gone to the Big Cat Rescue(lion or tiger food...as is...)

    One I am raising for a co worker the other 2 for family consumption....




    Pictures with my cell phone so not the best...You can see a little scar under the brown pigs eye..that was the only reason is was a cull.. most had very little wrong with them....

    The cute goes away fairly quick. Before you know it you will be looking at a 250 market weight pig. No cute left in them at all.

    so cute my potbellied pig just had 6 piglets they are so small
  9. Quote:That's what we thought last year when we got our first 2 butcher pigs. They were about 40 pounds each at the time. We raised them to about 300 pounds. They were still cute to me. They would fall over for belly rubs and even let me lead them with treats in hand.
    On the 'day' they went for there one way ride I had to load them into the truck by myself. Hubby wouldn't help do it-cuz he didnt' think he could.
    They walked right into the trailor no problem. Stood in there and ate there food and then laid down for there final belly rub.. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Have fun raising them. We just resently got 3 more to raise out this year. Hopefully it will be as fun and enjoyable as the last.
