Adam, a feeder is a weaned young pig ready to be grown out for butchering. Sometimes called weaners or feeders. When they get larger they get called pigs or hogs. And could also be called barrows, gilts, sows, .... The nomenclature of each species can be overwhelming! So we have two pigs (they've grown tremendously this last month!) that will be ready for butchering between mid-december and mid-january. The first suitable weather weekend, but not chrismas, and we'll no longer have pigs till next fall.
And I have a wee spot of envy about being in school. Learning is such a wonderful thing! And school can be so dull. So it's a wee spot.
