We Got Our Pigs!

Filed under: The Country Scoop |

With the U.P. fair season coming up just around the snowy corner it is time to get 4-H pigs!

We got our pigs from Rapid River from a fist time pig farmer. He brought the pigs up from Lansing, and they are very nice! We are currently keeping them in our stock-trailer because the snow if literally overflowing the pig pen!

Normally, our pigs are around 50 pounds when we get them, but they are a good 60 pounds this year. 10 pounds doesn’t seem like much but when they put on 250 pounds in 6 months, 10 pounds can make the difference in a market weight pig and a fat pig.

We plan on running them and muscling them…and ourselves…up this summer!

FUN!
