We put a deposit on 2 red wattle hogletts lol yesterday. So we can grow out red wattle/berkshire cross pigs for sale and the freezer. They will also till new land and clean up the acorns every year. Pics to follow.

Are you a member of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy? ([url=www.albc-usa.org]www.albc-usa.org[/url]) There is a lot of good information there about minor breeds. ~Jan

No we limit a lot of our memberships now as we don't have time to make full use of them. Also these don't have the paperwork paid on the parents.

There is a lot to learn about raising livestock.

Absolutely there is a huge learning curve on raising livestock, and with minor breeds it can be even larger
