  1. Mostly you will see chesterwhites and yorkshires, they are lean white skinned pigs market ready in 6-7 months at 280-300 pounds(127-136Kg)
    I currently have 1 durock, 1 chester white and 2 wild pigs that were trapped as piglets by a hunter friend.

  2. And do you have Tamworth, or Saddleback, or Gloucester Old Spot pigs in America? Lovely meat, if allowed to grow on longer than most farmers let them.

  3. But what I really want to know is do pigs really smell as bad as people say they do.

    • Pig pens can smell, however if so, it’s the owners fault for not removing pig dung daily. Also pigs can’t sweat, so to keep cool in hot weather they ‘Must’ access to (1) a over head water misting system, (2) a shallow clean water pool, (3) a mud pig wallow, and a mud wallow will always stink very badly.
      Pig houses/barns that are cleaned daily will smell no worse than a dairy milking barn.
