Large herds require sizable feed commitments, but you can slaughter pigs at any size for delectable meat and easier hog-keeping.
Pastured pigs need more than just outside airâ€”they need living grass to supplement their diets. Luckily, modern developments have made good porcine pasture management easier.
Providing pigs with water can be a challenge, but careful equipment selection and best practices can helpâ€“especially when winter temperatures drop below freezing.
If you choose to keep pigs over the winter, you’ll need to prepare their shelter and water dispensers, as well as plan for their health needs, before cold hits.
