    We are a small hobby farm in Mississippi where we raise Hereford hogs. Thought you all might enjoy seeing some pictures [​IMG]

    Wow, they are extremely cute. I love picture of the two bathing in the tub. It's great seeing people who raise animals for meat, but still love, care for, and respect the animals.
    I checked out your website on which you have a picture of your dog named Tank. What breed is he? His face looks exactly like my mystery mutt's face.

    Thank you so much. We do love all of our animals. Although some of them end up on the table, we treat them all with the care that all living creatures deserve :) Our boy Tank is a great Pyrenesse lab mix. :)

    Good looking pigs. Never raised herefords before. One of my blue butt sows had 20 piglets this past Thurday, best so far. Not all of them made it though.

    Thank you! Unfortunately all of the babies sometimes don't survive. [​IMG]
    We love our hogs and treat them as pets but we do also eat them when the time comes. This is my favorite part! [​IMG]

    The hereford is an old heritage breed. Years back they were on the endangered list. They are making a come back. They are a smaller hog and tend to have 8 or 9 young as opposed to say the yorkshire that will have 14 - 16 piglets at a time. Also the hereford is a northern hog. When I bought my guys we were the only ones in our state and several stated around with the hereford. The are becoming popular as show hogs. The are beautiful, docile hogs [​IMG]
