OK, so some of you know we were fattening a pig for the freezer...here are my records....to compare. March 20th....we got the pig. I have been doing the " weight by measure" Length(between ears to tail) x width( around chest behind front legs) x Girth( around waiste in fron of back legs) divided by 400 to get "guestimation" of weight. When we got him he was about 50 lbs. 7 April : 37x33x32= 97 pounds 14 April" 37x34x34= 106 pounds 21 April: 40x36x37= 133 pounds 28 April: 40x37x39= 144 pounds 5 May:41x42x40=172 pounds 12 MAy: 43x43x42=194 pounds 19 May:45x43x42=203 pounds 26 May...pig to slaughter. I forgot to measure. Hanging weight was 237 pounds. Freezer weight was 145 pounds meat. We spent on average $10.00 a week on feed, plus table scraps. So 9 weeks = $90.00 on feed. slaughter was $125 for slaughter/package/cure. total spent was $215.00 for 145 pounds meat. Not too bad...$1.48/pound So, we now have 2 more...They are much smaller..about 35 pounds start weight.
