Meats and Meals!
They're Yorkshire Landrace crosses.
Don't they look yummy? Kind of cute, too, lol. That's just dirt, they're all pink.
They've been raised on scratch grain and garden/kitchen waste.
I cooked them breakfast of oats, scratch grain, milk, and potatoes. They said they'd prefer it cooled off, but after a few minutes they started munching away.
The fellow didn't sell my pigs to someone else after all. He delivered them last night- in the dark. His helper was impressed with our pig pen and making plans to build two for sows at his place next year. They figure we need to go about a foot higher though.
Despite the pouring rain today, they seem happy.
School starts next week, Tuesday for #3 AND #4... We won't be homeschooling any more. For now, anyway. #1 and #2 go back on Wednesday. So, I will be a full time farmer, on my own, for the first time EVER... Scary, lol. I'm going to take the first week to get back into practice milking- #1 does most of the milking now- and then wean Monsoon and Maureen... and put them out in the pasture. We'll keep Murphy out as our relief milker, and because he's so much thinner than the other two, and the majority of the milk will be turned into BACON!
