Our piglets are a Yorkie/Duroc cross. The Yorkie will give you a long pig (good for bacon) and a the Duroc will give you a pig with larger shoulders and hams. We finish many of these pigs each year - a good quality high protein feed with good clean water and you will be very happy with the finished pig!

We have one group available mid March and another group available mid April. Piglets will have teeth and tail clipped, will be castrated, on starter and tagged with pig trace.
My thoughts on feeding pigs - garbage in = garbage out!
Treat these piglets like body builders (lots of protein) and you will be happy with the finished product.
If you feed a bunch of carbs (bread) you will get a flabby pig and dark tan fat
If you feed the cheapest feed on the market (an oat barley mix) it will take a long time to finish the pig, will cost more in the long run. The good side - you will have lots of fluffy poops thanks to the oats!
We feed a 17-18% protein feed of peas, barley, wheat, custom amino acids and hog mineral and finish in 6 1/2 months.
