I would think pigs are more work than cows? Especially if you do your own bacon and smoke - salt hams.
If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

Raising them there not alot of work.. just like hunting once you pull that trigger the work begins. I don't mind the processing and making hams and bacon but yeah that's some work. The taste though makes it worth it.

The wild hogs that I caught and held till I had a trailer load to bring to NC and TN, were alot of work. They needed feeding and to be watered daily.

I do but not many .. My biggest customer base wants to have roaster pigs. I buy old fat sows starting now for people who want to make sausage.

Interesting thread. With pigs on that barn, they seem to enjoy the environment. All they need are foods and water and they're good to grow. Good luck in taking good care of them.
