They have a job to do before they become food. The job is to clear out another section of land behind the garden that will be used for growing grain to feed all my animals. I'm taking this sustainability stuff to heart. I want to be able to produce the food to raise my pigs and chickens and ducks. Feed prices aren't going down!
So far the piglets have taken their new job seriously and are rooting away out there furiously. Man those noses are strong!
|Starting at 40 lbs. each, they should be about 300 lbs. this fall.|
Welcome to Redtail Ridge piglets!
I watched the ducks race over to the pigs with their necks stretched long to see who just moved in. The pigs had their noses to the air to smell who was coming to greet them. It was so funny to watch. About 15 feet away from each other everybody went back to grazing/rooting, and the official greeting was over :-) .
