Now would be a good time to get weened, 20-30 lb piglets. They'll be just about the right size by fall.

On average, they'll gain about 1lb per day (less when they are small but more after 3 months). and they'll gain about 1 lb for every 7 lbs of feed. After they get around 150 lbs, that feed ratio drops and they'll consume more but gain less.

that's another good reason to whack 'em out \:D

My dad has 8 now. We just ringed them the other day. It sure stops there rooting under the fence.

When i was a kid my dad and papaw raised them. I remember after we would close the filling station we would load up and go to different restaurants and pick up scraps. Stunk. Go home and feed. Stunk. About a month before killing time it was all some kind of feed not scraps. Don't remember. Amazing how all that stinky crap was forgotten at breakfast time. Wish i would have paid more attention to what he put in that sausage because it was the best and he sold it like hotcakes.

Excellent topic here IMO. I've noticed the piglets for sale on LSN lately. Would one acre hold 2 piglets until they reached 150#?

Good Lord Yes. We had less than a acre years ago and probably had 20 or more year round. Stink, good lord they stink. And JMO. My dad never had an electric fence.
