    I was considering getting a few pigs to raise but I have heard that they attract a lot of flies what method(s) do you use to keep the fly population under control

    Clean the pen frequently. Pigs are very neat in that area - they only poop in one area of their pen. Yes, you'll need to hang up some sort of fly killer but it's that way with all farm animals.
