Hi All: Mid may and I'm just getting my piggys. Normally I would have them in early march. Heavy snow that took forever to recede, pasture that refused to green up. All is ready now.  Starting this late i'll plan on butchering in late October. All girls this year , Rosemary , Sage and Fennel.

Good luck with your pigs! I'm in Texas where it is HOT! I raised my first pigs through the winter, which is mild here. I messed up and am raising pigs in the summer now. Never again! I guess if you had winter pigs, they would use all their feed to stay warm! Nice looking piggies, hope they grow off well for you!

Well those noses sure have been busy digging... and the other end is fertilizing....7 days and over 1/2 of the main pen is tilled !  With the rotation pens , the first pen will be ready to eat again in the time it takes for them to till the other three.
