I mean we don't have to compost cow manure for a year and they have a certain amount of ecoli in there guts (as I assume most animals do). We don't wait a year for chickens, sheep, goats.

The problems come in when there area is too small or there numbers are too large. Given you have 6 acres and you only want 2 pigs give them quite a large space. They will be cleaner and heather. We always gave ours plenty of veggie waste from a local market, as well as grain. Went in with a relative only once who raised some in a small area it was disgusting never again.
