Then I would go with a barrow (castrated male), so you don't have to worry about having babies on the ground until you all feel comfortable enough to deal with farrowing issues.

Hogs aren't that hard to raise, do you have a butcher or will you do it yourself (slaughtering, meat prep)?

Our son dosen't like anything that dosen't have color on the ears or the hams, because of sunburn issues in the past.

You can use a barrel cut in half the long way and screw some 4x4's on the bottom as a pan. Depending on the weather you might want to put drain holes on the bottom. But if you are feeding cooked slop, drain holes aren't the route to take.

You can train them to use nipples, just need a heated line for the winters to keep pipe from freezing.

Pig LOVE wallows and they will make one if they have the right ingredants.

Predator proof the place, if you have done so already. But you have a sow that 800 plus with babies that's all you need.

Keep them friendly by bringing treats, washing them down with the hose during those hot days or brushing.

Make it a rotine of loading and unloading so they want stress out on you when their appointment date comes.

If you got questions post them and we will answer.
