My SIL has asked me if she may build a pen on my property in order to raise 2 pigs she will get in the spring. I said sure as long as my brother (her hubby) does the labor! This is new to all of us and have many questions about the process. These animals are to be raised for slaughter at 250 pounds, give or take a few. 1) How much space is needed? 2) How much will feed cost if purchased from a feed and seed store (estimate)? 3) How long (estimate) will it take for the pigs to reach the desired weight? 4) What will the cost be per pound of pig raised? There are many more questions but these will keep the members busy for a while! Thanks for your time and knowledge!!
