Pigs – Then and now

How time flies.  I made the appointment today to have the first of my pigs processed.  Here they are shortly after their arrival in the fall of last year.

The pigs last year


Boy have they grown.  According to my calculations the male now weighs 185 lbs.  He should weigh at about 250 by processing time.  Here is a photo of the male.  What a difference.

Now - The Boy

The female weighs slightly less than the male.  She is about an inch shorter length wise and around the middle.  We are going to see how it goes with the male and then schedule processing for the female.  We may end up selling most of the meat from the female.  Let me know if you are interested.

Now - The Girl

This has gone VERY well.  Once we get through the first one, to see the process all the way through, we will probably purchase two more pigs.  I’ll keep you posted.
