Approximately 17 week old feeder pigs, gilts and barrows, for sale. All pigs were born between Sept 15-20, 2021. The sows of the pigs are Large Black and the boar is a farm cross, likely York / Duroc and maybe some Hampshire (he was bought as a feeder pig and kept intact due to his awesome demeanor).
Pigs wore born and raised outside on pasture. The pigs have only had non-GMO grain. They are trained to 2 strands of hot wire fence and if they know it's hot, they'll stay in one strand. They are rotated and respect a "dead" single wire while transitioning wires to a new paddock.
